Call for Submissions by Social & Legal Studies Journal: Submissions Accepted on a Rolling Basis

About the Opportunity

Social & Legal Studies, a leading international journal, offers submissions opportunities in order for an intellectual space where diverse traditions and critical approaches within legal study meet.

About the Journal

Social & Legal Studies is a leading international journal, publishing progressive, interdisciplinary and critical approaches to socio-legal study. The journal was born out of a commitment to feminist, anti-colonial and socialist economic perspectives to the study of law. It offers an intellectual space where diverse traditions and critical approaches within legal study meet. We particularly welcome work in new fields of socio-legal study, as well as non-western scholarship.
