The Newcastle Law Review

The Newcastle Law Review (NLR), the journal of Newcastle Law School, was first launched in 1995. Since that time an impressive series of articles and notes has been published, representing traditional categories of legal scholarship as well as interdisciplinary contributions. Special issues of the journal have addressed a wide range of topics, including 'Treaties and Constitutions', 'Children and the Law', 'Moral Panics, the Media and the Law' and ‘Evidence-based Law and Practice’. The reinvigoration of The Newcastle Law Review with a broader circulation is part of our commitment to contribute to dialogue and discussion by supporting from 2018 an open access approach.Our publication supports double blind peer reviewing and also has an editorial Board to oversee the operations and content of each issue. It is intended that The Newcastle Law Review will reflect some of the significant outreach activities undertaken by Newcastle Law School.
