Focus and Scope

The Kent Student Law Review (KSLR) is a student led publication that is aimed at providing a platform to promote the best work produced by Kent Law School students. Our focus is to publish theoretically informed critical legal scholarship that is the best representation of law in society.

By narrowing our focus to critical legal scholarship, KSLR seeks to enhance the presence of critical legal thought within academia and to further the philosophy of teaching at Kent Law School. In so doing, KSLR will serve as a stepping-stone for the further academic achievement of Kent Law School students through this unique publishing platform
