The Criminal Law Blog is seeking submissions in a range of areas including, but not limited to:
- Recent developments in UK criminal law.
- Political developments which will be likely to influence criminal law and justice.
- Comparative discussions on criminal law and justice in the UK and another jurisdiction.
- Articles which fall within the broader field of Criminology.
2) Case Notes
- A brief summary and discussion of a recent UK criminal law case.
3) Book Reviews
- Brief overview and comment.
All submissions must be of a high standard in line with the guidelines for the Kings Student Law Review articles in terms of content and quality. The articles should not be purely descriptive and should contain some analysis or comment. However, the blogposts will obviously be of a different tone and nature to journal submissions and formatting criteria will be relaxed. Submissions should be between 1000 – 2000 words. Exceptions to this will be considered in appropriate cases and at the editor’s discretion. While no bibliography is necessary, all cases, legislation or academic articles must be accurately referenced and cited as endnotes.
The editor will check submissions for accuracy and originality. While every effort will be made to work with contributors to ensure their work is of an acceptable standard, it is entirely up to the discretion of the editor to decide which articles will be published. Contributors will be notified if their submission has been chosen to be included on the blog and whether any revisions are required.
