New Chief Editor and Editorial Board and call for papers


The Northern Ireland Legal Quarterly was founded in 1936 and is a leading peer-reviewed legal journal published four times a year in electronic format by the School of Law at Queen’s University Belfast. The journal considers prospective articles on all areas of law and from all methodologies. At the start of 2018 a new Editorial Board was appointed with Dr Mark Flear as the Chief Editor, and Dr Heather Conway and Dr Luke Moffett as Co-Editors.

The Chief Editor invites submissions of full-length articles (approx. 10,000 words) in any area of law, plus shorter items (approx. 2,000 words) on ‘Case Notes and Comments’, ‘Statute and Legislation Review’ and ‘Innovations and Trends in the Market for Legal Services’. The Chief Editor also invites submissions of proposals for special issues. These are ‘open calls’ with no cut-off date.

See our submission page for full details.
