The Liverpool Law Review

The Liverpool Law Review is a peer-reviewed academic law journal published by Springer. Established in 1979, the Journal has been based in the School of Law at LJMU since its creation. The current editor-in-chief is Dr Gary Wilson, while a number of members of LTAP have served on the editorial board, published within the Journal or guest-edited special issues. The Liverpool Law Review has a wide-ranging remit, which includes LTAP’s research strengths, and will consider submissions on all areas of law and policy, broadly construed. As a result, the Journal contains articles published by academic scholars across the globe and is an important reference point not only in the UK, but internationally too.

The Liverpool Law Review seeks to provide a forum where topical legal themes and issues can be explored in depth and, in furthering this objective, regularly produces special issues co-ordinated by guest editors. Some of the more topical special issues have addressed matters such as the international legal implications of the Arab Spring, the effects of the Scottish Independence Referendum, and legal and literary cultural perspectives on Brexit. Other thematic special issues have centred on such diverse topics as legal education, animal welfare law, socio-legal studies and human dignity, among many others.

Submission of papers to the Journal is via its web portal. Potential contributors are welcome to contact Dr Gary Wilson to discuss proposed submissions, who can also be approached to discuss possible special issues.
