PUBLIC LAW - Sweet&Maxwell
Since its creation in 1956 Public Law has been, and continues to be, the leading forum for information and debate in the constantly evolving section of law and government.
Digests and commentary on cases and legislation ensure the reader is fully up-to-date with recent developments, while scholarly articles explore leading issues in depth. It is indispensable for both practitioners and those involved with the study of constitutional and administrative law in the UK and abroad.
Public Law is peer-reviewed and seeks to publish research-based work of the highest quality. The journal publishes work across the whole range of scholarship in constitutional and administrative law, including doctrinal analysis, empirical and other socio-legal work, history, comparative studies and legal theory.
Public Law is published four times a year: in January (Spring issue), April (Summer issue), July (Autumn issue) and October (Winter issue). Its readership includes academics, practitioners and policy-makers in the UK, Europe and in common law jurisdictions around the world. Submissions are invited for two sections of the journal: the Analysis section contains shorter items, while the Articles section contains more in-depth contributions.
It is recommended to all contributors that they contact the Editor before making a formal submission in order to receive guidance about timing and to be warned of any overlap with work of other authors that may already be in the pipeline.
