UCL Faculty of Laws


UCL Journal of Law and Jurisprudence

The UCL Journal of Law and Jurisprudence has been edited and published by students of UCL Laws since 2012

Journal of Law and Jurisprudence

The publication superseded the UCL Journal of Human Rights, the UCL Commercial Law Review as well as the UCL Jurisprudence Review, the first UK academic law review to be run and written by students, established in 1994 by Stephen Guest, Emeritus Professor of Legal Philosophy.

The Journal publishes scholarly contributions from academics, researchers and practitioners, as well as showcasing outstanding research of post-graduate students.

It accepts submissions in all areas of law and jurisprudence, reflecting the diverse and innovative areas of research at UCL Laws, and its distinguished tradition of legal philosophy. The Board of Editors assesses all submissions through a blind double peer review. The Journal is published twice a year and is also available via our website.

The Journal’s primary aim is to make a high-quality contribution to current debates on local and global issues of law and jurisprudence. It also gives students the opportunity to edit and publish an outstanding law review.

Finally, the Journal seeks to add to the vibrant intellectual life of UCL’s world leading law school, a place where originality and innovation are highly prized, and where the shared pursuit of ideas remains fundamental to the Faculty’s continuing success.
