About the UCL Jurisprudence and Law Journal

The UCL Journal of Law and Jurisprudence (UCLJLJ) is a journal of legal scholarship edited and published by postgraduate students of the Faculty of Laws at UCL. The Journal is published annually in October and includes articles from scholars, academics and practitioners, as well as showcasing the outstanding research being undertaken by students at UCL. In keeping with UCL’s distinguished tradition of legal philosophy, the Journal’s name and content reflect the continuing vitality of jurisprudence in the Faculty. But, as in the Faculty itself, alongside the theoretical work, there is innovative, vibrant work on a rich variety of topics.

The primary purpose of the Journal is to bring the excellent research produced by students of the UCL Faculty of Law to the attention of a wide readership. Without journals like this, such work would only be known to the student’s supervisor and examiner. Its second main purpose is to give students in the Faculty of Laws the opportunity to be involved in the creation and production of a law review, thereby giving them experience of both the academic and entrepreneurial roles involved. The third main aim is broader: it is that the Journal will add to the vibrant intellectual life of the Faculty of Laws at UCL, as a place where originality and innovation are highly prized, and where the shared pursuit, development and dissemination of ideas – by both Faculty members and students – remains fundamental to the Faculty’s continuing successes and achievements.


The Journal may be purchased for £10 through the UCL Faculty of Laws by contacting Keith Shore (keith.shore@ucl.ac.uk). It is also available in full text online through Westlaw and HeinOnline.
