Call for Papers
This is your opportunity to have your work published in the Gray’s Inn Student Law Journal. The Journal will be circulated to barristers and students at all four Inns, as well as to law schools around the country and further afield. We intend to publish both electronic and print editions.
We are looking for a mixture of articles, case-notes and reviews on any legal area, be it a current debate, or simply something you think readers would find interesting. Submissions should be between 3,000 and 5,000 words, although case-notes and reviews may be shorter. One way of contributing is to repurpose an outstanding piece of work from your legal education to date; another is to craft a submission from scratch. All articles will be read by somebody with knowledge of your chosen field.
It is advised that you submit an article for publication. If you are seeking pupillage, or even planning on further legal education, having your work published in the Journal will bolster your academic profile and make applications stand out.
Submissions must be from current student members of Gray’s Inn and will be considered on a rolling basis until 1st May 2018 for publication in the summer. If, however, you want to receive a decision on your submission before the closing of the Pupillage Gateway (7th February 2018), please submit your work by 5th January 2018.
Your work should conform to the style guide. If your submission is selected for publication, you will be required to sign a declaration stating that your work is entirely your own, and that you have the right to submit it for publication.
Please contact us if you have any queries. We look forward to reading your submissions.
