Birkbeck Law Review Publishes its Third Edition

The School of Law is pleased to announce the publication of the most recent issue of the Birkbeck Law Review (Vol. 3(1)).

The School of Law is pleased to announce the publication of the most recent issue of the Birkbeck Law Review (Vol. 3(1)). The independent, student-led publication features articles written by students, professors, and legal practitioners.

Previous work published in Birkbeck Law Review has been cited by the Supreme Court in the UK, and by renowned academics across the globe.

The current issue features the work of Enrique Prieto-Rios whose article ‘Neoliberal Market Rationality: The Driver of International Investment Law’ argues that neoliberalism is an ideological project that has played an essential part in shaping international investment law, and so limits the ability of host states to regulate in matters of public interest.

The publication’s foreward is written by Oscar Guardiola-Rivera, and features interviews with Alberto Toscano and Eduardo Mendieta. Ian McDonald writes a punchy answer to the question: 'Is Magna Carta More Honoured in the Breach?', and Jonathan Ow reviews Emily Grabham’s 2009 essay ‘In Intersectionality: Traumatic Impressions’.

The other contributing authors include Judith Perle, Dzmitry Tsapkou, Samantha S Moura Ribeiro, and Mikael Silfors.

A full copy of the most recent issue can be downloaded from the Birkbeck Law Review website.

Birkbeck Law Review is calling for papers for its 2015 conference ‘Migration Borders and Violence’. The deadline for submissions is Thursday 21st May 2015.
