Challenging preconceptions and debating ideas since 2015.

Honouring our predecessor 'The City Law Society Journal', we are keen to make a difference in academic law.

The Editorial Board is formed from current members of The City Law School. It currently comprises the Editor-in-Chief, Deputy Editor-in-Chief (who concurrently holds the role of Senior Editor for 2023-2024), Managing Editor, Publishing Editors, Article Editors, and an Annual Launch Event Manager.

 

All submissions undergo at least three rounds of editorial review. They include reviews performed by the Editorial Board and the Academic Advisory Board ('the AAB') from The City Law School. The AAB is led by Dr David Seymour. This ensures that all articles published by the Review are of a high standard.

 

The Review, published annually in March, is stored in collection in The City Law Library, the British Library, and the Gray's Inn Library Collection. It is also indexed in the Gray's Inn Library catalogue, and HeinOnline.

Volume V - Piece in Focus

'...The underlying principle of unjust enrichment is corrective justice, which strives to restore parties to their pre-transfer positions...indeed, if we fail to respect [so], any future doctrinal development is highly likely to be unprincipled and detrimental to the rule of law.'

'DEBUNKING THE WANT OF AUTHORITY MYTH - AGENCY CASES IN UNJUST ENRICHMENT'

ALEXANDER CLEVEWOOD NG, 2023

Volume IV - Piece in Focus

'There is widespread dissatisfaction amongst prosecutors and academics with regard to the inability of the law to differentiate between incompetent doctors and those who make momentary mistakes. Because the law disregards defendants' moral culpability, it is overly harsh on those defendants who make unintentional errors when under pressure and trying to do their best for their patients.'

'ON THIN ICE - CLINICAL TURNED CRIMINAL: REFORMING THE LAW ON MEDICAL MANSLAUGHTER'

LARA OZYER, 2022

But, as it seems to me, what it means to be deprived of liberty must be the same for everyone, whether or not they have physical or mental disabilities...The fact that my living arrangements are comfortable, and indeed make my life as enjoyable as it could possibly be, should make no difference. A gilded cage is still a cage.

Baroness Hale - P v Cheshire West and Chester Council [2014] UKSC 19, [46]
