Call for Submissions

The Editorial Board for the ELSA Malta Law Review is welcoming submissions for its 2019 edition.

The ELSA Malta Law Review is an annual student-edited and peer-reviewed law review entailing the works of law students, young legal practitioners, and academics. The Law Review is an open access journal, freely available through its website at https://mt.elsa.org/emlr/ and the academic database, Social Science Research Network.

The Law Review seeks to publish original and high calibre, scholarly works within any area of the law. The Editorial Board, however, is particularly interested in European law, international law and comparative law.

Now entering its sixth edition, the Law Review has garnered considerable respect and esteem among the local and international academic community.

The Law Review’s rigorous editorial review process, which is a combination of editorial review by post-graduate students followed by peer review, has guaranteed that only submissions which achieve academic excellence are published.

Publication in this young but promising law journal is an achievement in itself. All contributions must respect the following word counts:

• a minimum of 4,500 and a maximum of 8,500 words for articles;
• a minimum of 3,000 and a maximum of 4,000 words for case comments and legal updates;
• a minimum of 1,000 and a maximum of 2,000 words for book reviews.

Contributions must comply with the second edition of the Modern Humanities Research Association Style Guide and the ELSA Malta Law Review Citation and Style Guide. When in conflict with each other, the ELSA Malta Law Review Citation and Style Guide shall prevail over the Modern Humanities Research Association Style Guide.

Furthermore, all notes shall appear as footnotes, and shall comply with the fourth edition of the Oxford Standard for the Citation of Legal Authorities and the ELSA Malta Law Review Citation and Style Guide. When in conflict, the ELSA Malta Law Review Citation and Style Guide shall prevail over the Oxford Standard for the Citation of Legal Authorities.

Submissions are to be made by sending an email on ‘Eic@mt.elsa.org.’ The Deadline for submissions is the 15th of December 2018.

If you have any queries, do not hesitate to contact the Editorial Board at ‘Eic@mt.elsa.org’.
