3rd Annual Human Rights Journal


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

Deadline for contributions is 5pm Friday 14 July 2017 to

Submissions are sought from students (at whatever stage of their studies), pupil barristers and trainee solicitors—of all ages. Submissions can take the form of a scholarly article on a human rights topic (1,500 words maximum) or a shorter opinion piece or case commentary (750 – 1,000 words). Any submissions above this word count will be disregarded.

All articles should be in MS Word format, in 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.
