Becoming an author

We are always on the look out for talented writers to contribute to the Common Law Review (CLR). For information about upcoming issues open for contributions, please see Call for Papers. Not found a topic that interests you? Please feel free to drop the Editorial Board an email if you would like to contribute an article from a different area of law or neighbouring field. We usually publish several articles about hot issues not related directly to the topic of the relevant issues so that our readers can keep up to date with a broad range of interesting developments in common law.

Call for Papers

There are currently two issues being compiled. Please consult the Call for Papers on Law & Economics and Competition Law for further information. Although both issues are at an advanced stage of completion, please feel free to contact the Editorial Board if you are interested in contributing. If none of the topics suggested in the Call for Papers interest you, feel free to propose your own!

Benefits

Listen to professor Michael P. Seng explain what he sees as benefits for students of contributing to the CLR.

Since its creation in 2001, the CLR has published more than 120 articles in English by law students and fresh law graduates and contributors have told us that having their work published in the CLR has had a number of unique benefits. The experience gained through being involved in the CLR can improve your CV and help you to find a better job or win a scholarship to study abroad. The CLR is also a unique forum for meeting practitioners and academics from common law countries as well as other people who share an interest in common law. The CLR can also help you to publish the results of your academic research or improve your drafting skills by having your work put through our thorough editorial process.

Editorial process

It is our editorial process which we believe distinguishes the CLR from other law journals in Central and Eastern Europe. Contributors’ articles are edited by his or her dedicated staff editor and sent back to the author with comments or suggestions. Each article is also reviewed by native English speaking editors, with the help of professor Michael P. Seng and his students from the John Marshall Law School in Chicago.

Please check our Publication Guidelines and FAQ if you want to know more about the editorial process and requirements for submissions, including format and citations.We accept submissions in electronic format, up to 2,500 to 3,000 words long and which follow the CLR’s citation rules.
