Previous volumes are hosted on Westlaw, HeinOnline and on the Irish Society for European Law’s website. The journal – whose articles are blind peer reviewed – is now issuing a call for original papers for its 2024 volume. Papers are welcomed in the following categories:

  • Long articles (indicative length 8,000 – 12,000 words)[1]
  • Shorter articles and analysis (indicative length up to 6,000 words)[2]
  • Professional practice pieces, addressing areas of European law and/or practice that would be of particular interest to practitioners (indicative length up to 6,000 words)
  • Notes on case law (indicative length 2,000-3,000 words)[3]
  • Notes on legislation (indicative length up to 6,000 words)
  • Book reviews (indicative length 1,000-2,000 words)

The journal welcomes submissions on all areas of European law, including EU law and European law in the wider sense.

The journal has an international reputation and attracts contributions from scholars, practitioners, judges and public servants (writing in a personal capacity) from across Europe and beyond. Submissions are welcomed from established scholars, early career researchers, students, and practitioners.

Please send submissions for consideration by the editorial board to by Friday 15th March 2024 in Word format, size 12 font, single-spaced.
