Nottingham Law Journal

Nottingham Law School publishes the Nottingham Law Journal.

The journal was founded in 1977 (as the Trent Law Journal), changing to its current title in 1992. It is peer-reviewed and normally published annually. The journal is included in the indicative holding list of the Library Standard published by the Society of Legal Scholars (2009) and the content is currently available on HeinOnline and Gale databases.

The editor welcomes the submission of articles, case notes and critical commentary on any relevant field of law, although preference is given to articles which address issues of contemporary legal significance.

General enquiries and article submissions should be made to the editor, Janice Denoncourt.

For case notes and book reviews please contact the deputy editor, Helen Hall.

For Legislative Commentaries please contact Dr David Barrett.

Notes for contributors

Authors are invited to submit complete articles of between 6,000 and 12,000 words (exc. footnotes) for editorial consideration. Articles submitted must:

  • be in the recommended house style;
  • not have been submitted for publication elsewhere;
  • include an abstract of their article (less than 300 words);
  • include a short biography that demonstrates their legal expertise related to the topic of their submission.

Following submission, if the article is of interest it may be selected to be sent out for peer review. The authors will be notified of the outcome in due course. The editor reserves the right to reject articles that do not complement the existing range of papers or where it is not possible to identify a suitable review team.
