Kings Inns Student Law Review 2011

  1. 1. KING’S INNS STUDENT LAW REVIEW It is intended that The King’s Inns Student Law Review (formerly known as the Irish Student Law Review) will be an annual publication edited and produced by students of the Honorable Society of King's Inns. Each volume contains articles written by law students and recent law graduates. The Review provides a forum for reflective legal analysis, providing students and practitioners with a valuable resource of legal insight and argument. Indeed, the archives of the Irish Student Law Review contain a letter from a judge thanking an ISLR author for the thorough treatment of a particular topic, which he had found useful in deliberating over a case! This website – www.kislr.ie - was launched by the Honourable Mr. Justice Adrian Hardiman of the Irish Supreme Court on 21 February 2002. It provides access to past volumes of the King’s Inns Student Law Review which were previously difficult to locate. The KISLR also features on online legal resources such as heinonline. Irish law features heavily in the KISLR, but International Law, EU Law, Jurisprudence and Comparative Law also have a prominent place. The KISLR presents two distinct opportunities for King’s Inns students: getting an article published in an established, quality journal and/or joining the editorial board. Articles should be between 6000 and 12,000 words, of good academic standard, of original content and adequately referenced. Submissions should be sent to editor@kislr.ie by the 31st January 2011. Please feel free, however, to submit articles before the deadline: earlier articles tend to get more detailed consideration by the Board as they are not jockeying for attention among a deluge of last minute articles trying to make the deadline. Being a member of the KISLR board involves reading all submissions and critically analysing them for publication. The Editorial Board selects between 9 and 12 articles for the potential publication. Smaller editorial panels then enter into a dialogue with the articles’ authors to address any outstanding criticisms the Board (or associate readers) have of the article. On occasion, these criticisms are not adequately addressed, the article fails to meet the KISLR standard and is therefore not published. In general however this dialogue produces an article of exceptionally high standard, creating huge difficulties for the adjudicators in deciding which article will be awarded the ‘best article’ prize! Members of the Editorial Board glean insight into how an academic article is put together, get up to speed with the diverse areas of law covered by the submitted articles and work closely with an enthusiastic and motivated team. Previous years have found that having an optimum mix between diploma students and degree students produces a board with varying and complementary professional and academic backgrounds. Anybody interested in joining the Editorial Board for 2010/2011 should email their CV to …mfaulkner@kingsinns.ie by Wednesday 3rd November, 2010.
