Write for The Young Human Rights Lawyer (deadline 14th July)

The HRLA Young Lawyers’ Committee is seeking submissions for the third edition of its annual journal The Young Human Rights Lawyer. The first volume, published in October 2015, included a foreword by Lord Pannick QC and contributions from eight young lawyers.

If you have a submission  – please send it by 5pm on Friday 14 July 2017.

Submissions are sought from students (at whatever stage of their studies), pupil barristers and trainee solicitor—of all ages. Entries can take the form of a scholarly article on a human rights topic (1,500 words maximum) or a shorter opinion piece or case summary (750-1000 words). Any entries above the word limit will be disregarded.

All articles should be in MS Word format, Book Antiqua font, size 11. OSCOLA referencing should be used and references should be in the form of footnotes at the bottom of each page, not in the body of the text or as endnotes. The title of the article should be centred, in bold and underlined. The authors name (but no further information) should appear at the end of the article on the right-hand side of the page.

Want inspiration? Previous editions of the journal can be found on the HRLA website.
