Review Process

All submissions are subject to the ESLR’s submission Review Process.

Once papers are submitted, submissions are considered by the Editorial Board in order to identify reviewers with sufficient expertise in the area in question. If no suitable reviewers are available, some articles may be rejected at this stage.

Where possible, articles are anonymised and passed to our postgraduate peer reviewers. If it meets our standards of academic quality the piece progresses to a copy editor to ensure the submission conforms to the formatting and linguistic criteria. The peer reviewing process is anonymous.

Once all the submissions have been reviewed, a final meeting of the Editorial Board is convened to collate the issue.

We are always looking for students at the law school who are interested in getting involved in the editorial process. Anyone interested should email the Editors-in-Chief.
