KSLR Call for Submissions 2019


The Kent Student Law Review (‘KSLR’) is pleased to announce an open call for submissions to its fifth annual volume. The KSLR is a student-led publication that aims to showcase the high-quality work produced by Kent Law School Students. Our focus is to publish critical legal scholarship that is the best representation of law in society.

The Call for Submissions is open to KLS students of 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 also invite shorter submissions provided that they are of a high quality. Case comments and book reviews are 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 these minimum requirements, revisions may be required at the discretion of the KSLR Editorial Board. All submissions are subject to double-blind review, meaning that both the reviewers and the authors are anonymous up to the point of publication.

Final decisions on publication will be made by the KSLR Editorial Board. These decisions will consider the quality of argument, research and writing that submissions demonstrate as well as their compatibility with the focus and philosophy of the KSLR.  

The deadline for submissions is 2pm on Friday 1st February 2019. All manuscripts must be uploaded in Microsoft Word format to  https://journals.kent.ac.uk/index.php/kslr. All submissions must be submitted in the KSLR house style which can be found at https://journals.kent.ac.uk/index.php/kslr/announcement/view/17.
