Ran by University of Dundee’s students, the Dundee Student Law Review was originally established to showcase the work done by University of Dundee law students. Accepting both national and international pieces, we actively campaign for Dundee law students to submit their high standard works, often from past assessments or even brand new pieces, written specifically for publishing in the review.

With a peer-review system provided largely by University of Dundee staff, and sponsoring and prizes issued by Anderson Strathern and SCOLAG, we offer students an opportunity to be published in a high-quality student-ran journal with the potential to win prizes which could contribute hugely to their careers, such as work placements and publishing in larger journals.

Additionally the Dundee Student Law Review also offers students the opportunity to join the Editorial Board, whereby they are responsible for the editing of pieces submitted to the journal and allows the issuing of feedback in an unmatched peer-to-peer experience, giving the editor an unique experience which can be exceptional for their CVs and can allow them to be part of one of the University’s most academic and satisfying experiences.
