Criteria for Submissions:
- Between 5,000 and 10,000 words in length
- Not published previously
- Formatted in Microsoft Word
- The University College Dublin Law Review house style of citation is OSCOLA 2010 (see http://www.law.ox.ac.uk/publications/oscola.php)
By post: UCD Law Review Editorial Board, Sutherland School of Law, Belfield, Dublin 4, Ireland
The deadline for submission to the Fourteenth Volume of the Review is March 28th 2014.
Late submissions may be considered at the discretion of the Editor.
The UCD Law Review Editorial Board considers all submissions that reach us by our official deadline. All articles are reviewed anonymously
by the entirety of the Editorial Board, with a democratic vote deciding whether an article will proceed for further consideration. If an article
does proceed, it will be subject to several more stages of review, including an examination by our Faculty Advisors.
Due to the high volume of submissions that we receive, and the quality of material that we strive for, the review and selection process takes time.
The Editor of the Review will notify authors of the Board's decision by email.
