North East Law Review

The North East Law Review is Newcastle University’s student-led law journal.

A team of student editors, chosen annually by competitive applications from the Law School’s undergraduate and postgraduate student body, prepares the very best student coursework submissions for open-access publication.

The editorial process requires sustained engagement with such material, providing the editors with experience which they can use to improve their own coursework submissions as well as team-working and publication skills.

The North East Law was founded in the 2012-13 academic year with the assistance of a Higher Education Academy grant.

By showcasing the high-quality legal research produced by Newcastle students on an open-access platform, it allows our students to influence the key debates on law and society that they have spent their degrees working on, and provides other students with a benchmark to aspire to.

New editions of the journal are published every June and you can keep track of the review team’s thoughts on current legal developments (and work they have commissioned) through the NELR’s Current Legal Issues Blog:
