SOAS School of Law scholars joint editors of new OUP law journal

15 November 2013

A new journal by Oxford University Press, the London Review of International Law, jointly edited by SOAS, University of London School of Law and London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), has been published.

The journal is edited by SOAS scholars Professor Matthew Craven, Dean of the Faculty of Law and Social Sciences and Dr Catriona Drew, Lecturer in International Law, together with Dr Stephen Humphreys, Dr Andrew Lang and Professor Susan Marks, Professor of International Law, of the LSE.

The London Review of International Law publishes highest-quality scholarship on international law from around the world. Reflecting the pace and reach of developments in the field, the journal seeks to capture the ways in which received ideas are being challenged and reshaped by new subject-matters, new participants, new conceptual apparatuses and new cross-disciplinary connections.

The central aims of the London Review are to encourage imaginative thinking, inspire innovative analysis, and promote excellence in writing. While no area of international legal interest is excluded, the London Review prioritises non-doctrinal scholarship, including theory, history and socio-legal studies.

Professor Craven said: “We are delighted to announce the launch of the London Review of International Law. It is the product of many years of academic collaboration between colleagues at SOAS and the LSE, and has been conceived both as a way of giving recognition to the extraordinary depth and breadth of international legal scholarship within London, and to provide a venue for the exciting array of heterodox scholarship that is now emerging globally, which seeks to challenge established disciplinary boundaries, uncover untold stories or lost traditions, and expand the analytical repertoire of the discipline.”
