Nottingham Law Journal
The Centre for Legal Research publishes the Nottingham Law Journal.
The Journal was founded in 1977 (as the Trent Law Journal), changing to its current title in 1992. It is peer-reviewed and normally published in two issues (summer and winter). From 2012 the Journal will be published as an annual yearbook in late spring. The Journal is included in the indicative holding list of the Library Standard published by the Society of Legal Scholars (2003 standard).
Papers and case notes for the next edition of the Nottingham Law Journal are now invited for submission; see the call for papers for more details.
