3. Call for Submission, UCL Journal of Law and Jurisprudence. The Editorial Board of the UCL Journal of Law and Jurisprudence is pleased to call for submissions for the second issue of 2017 on the theme of ‘Crisis and the Law’. The Editorial Board welcomes submissions that engage with this general theme. It is broadly conceived, covering a range of political, economic, social, environmental and cultural issues, and leaves scope for any area of law or jurisprudence (domestic, regional or international) that is deemed to be crisis-related. Submissions could be theoretical, doctrinal or aimed at practice. Concretely, the Journal seeks to publish pieces that either articulate the concept of crisis within the law or how the law deals with current crises. We accept articles of between 8,000-12,000 words, case notes of 6,000-8,000 words and book reviews of 1,000-2,000 words. All submissions must comply with OSCOLA. The deadline for submissions is 14th April 2017. Manuscripts must be uploaded via the submissions section.
