School of Law Working Papers Series

The Surrey Law Working Papers (SLWP) Series seeks academic working papers in any legal subjects. All received papers will go through light review. The authors can later publish the final versions of their papers in academic journals. The Surrey Law Working Papers Series is an excellent opportunity for both legal academics and students to disseminate their research output on the early stages of the research projects, invite comments and secure publication of an updated copy.

All papers will be published in hard copies and circulated among British and Irish law schools. All papers will also be uploaded on the SLWP website. They will be available in open access.

The papers should follow the OSCOLA referencing style and should not be longer than 20000 words (4000 words for the short notes section) however the longer submissions will be considered. A short (50-100 words) abstract of the article should be supplied. Authors should state their present academic or professional affiliation.
