King’s Inns Law Review Call for Submissions Volume VII

King’s Inns Law Review Call for Submissions Volume VII

The King’s Inns Law Review (KILR) is currently accepting submissions for its seventh volume. Articles, case–notes or commentaries will be considered for publication in Volume VII of the KILR. There will be a prize for the best article published in Volume VII. 

The Honourable Mr Justice Frank Clarke recently addressed the students of King’s Inns on the 6th volume of the King’s Inns Law review and challenged us to consider where the law stands today but also to identify where the law might be persuaded to go tomorrow. The 7th volume of KILR will seek to respond to Mr Justice Frank Clarke’s address and invite submissions on topics that in some way critically analyse where the law stands at the moment and endeavour to suggest the direction we are moving. Submissions can be on any legal topic but we are particularly interested in articles focusing on the developing legal jurisprudence in the areas of gender issues, domestic implementation of international obligations, responses to corporate offences, sexual offences, crime affecting personal safety, privacy and reputation, including cyber–bullying and our response to serious violent crime.

Articles must be between 5,000 and 12,000 words (including footnotes). Case–notes and commentaries may be shorter. All submission must conform to the OSCOLA Ireland Referencing Format (which can be found here) and be submitted in .doc or .docx format. 

The closing date for submission is 1 June 2017. 

Submissions should be sent to kilrsubmissions@kingsinns.ie.

The Annual KILR Author’s Night will take place on Friday, April 28th 2017 at 6.30pm which provides prospective authors with an opportunity to get advice, inspiration and guidance from a number of eminent speakers from the judiciary, the bar and academia. Full details here.

Keep up to date with the KILR by following them on Twitter @KILawReview and on Facebook.
