  • KLR call for new editorial members 2024


    The Kent Law Review is the law school’s in-house, undergraduate, student-run academic journal, established in 2013. Supported by experienced academic staff, we offer students an excellent opportunity to have their best work reviewed and formally published, or to develop their editorial and critical legal capabilities as part of our editorial board. The journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. The journal seeks to publish theoretically informed critical legal scholarship. By choosing to do so, KLR seeks to enhance the presence of critical legal thought within the Academy and to further the philosophy of teaching at our law school. In so doing, KLR serves as a stepping-stone for the academic achievement of Kent Law School students through this unique publishing platform.


    We are looking for enthusiastic and dedicated students to join the editorial board and wider team of the Kent Law Review in the following positions: Editor, Associate Editor, Secretary, Marketing Officer.

                                CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

    The Kent Student Law Review (‘KSLR’) is very pleased to announce an open call for submissions for its third issue. The KSLR is a student-led publication  that is aimed at providing a unique platform to promote the best work
    produced by Kent Law School Students, both undergraduate and post-graduate. Our focus is to publish the very best of theoretically informed critical legal scholarship that is the best representation of law in society.

    The Call for Submissions is open to all stages of study, both undergraduate and postgraduate level. The KSLR is seeking submissions between 3,000 and 10,000 words in length, however we are happy to invite submissions of shorter papers provided that they are of a high quality. Case comments and book reviews are also welcomed but should not exceed 3,000 words. Furthermore, articles which are based on essays and dissertations originally submitted for
    assessment are accepted. In such cases, the submission’s original grade should be no lower than 65%. Even where articles satisfy such minimum requirements, revisions may be required, if determined to be necessary, at the discretion of the KSLR Editorial Board.

    Submissions are subject to a double blind review—where neither the reviewer’s nor the author’s identities are known to one another. Final decisions regarding the publishing of submissions will be made by the KSLR Editorial Board and will ultimately be based upon quality of research and writing, diversity and fit with the focus and philosophy of the KSLR.

    All submissions are required to be submitted in the KLSR house style which can be found on the KSLR website and are due by 2pm on Wednesday February 15 th 2017. All manuscripts must be uploaded in Microsoft Word format to
