The University of Sunderland Student Law Journal provides students with an opportunity to present their work to faculty members and peers, and aims to invigorate both undergraduate and postgraduate law students’ active participation in the community of legal scholars. The Journal unities students and staff by helping students to engage in the publishing process with support and guidance from experienced members of academia.

The peer-reviewed, open-access journal, is devoted to legal research and is a platform to publish notes, case comments and papers. The journal is also interested in any proposals to draft and/or amend the existing laws. Our Law students are invited to submit papers, articles and case comments engaging with any area of law.
