The Student Law Journal of the Queen’s University of Belfast


Welcome to the sixth edition of the Student Law Journal here at Queen’s, and the last from the editorial board of 2018/19. Off the back of our hugely successful fifth edition, we’ve put together a journal that showcases the breadth and depth of writing that comes out of the LLB programme at the School of Law.

It’s been a good year for the Student Law Journal – we published our first special edition, relaunched our website, and started conversations with colleagues at home and around the world about opportunities for collaboration. Peers and faculty engaged with us on our twitter like never before, and we even broke our record for submissions within the first week of our call for papers in January. After a year off, we’re enormously proud that the SLJ’s running at full steam.

Long may it continue!

Peace out,
