Call for Special Feature/Symposia Proposals

The SJLS invites proposals for a symposium or special feature on a theme related to Singapore and/or the common law to be published in a future issue of the SJLS. Such symposia may be composed of between 4-7 articles, not including an introduction by a guest editor(s) who will convene the symposium. Strong proposals for symposia with fewer or more articles will also be considered. Symposium topics should fit well within the journal’s focus areas. Articles submitted as part of a symposium will be subject to the normal peer review process.

A symposium proposal should include the following:

  • A statement of a maximum of 1,500 words describing the subject-matter and the proposed contribution of the symposium to the relevant field of scholarship.

  • A draft table of contents identifying proposed contributors.

  • Abstracts for each of the expected papers indicating each paper’s contribution to the theme of the symposium.

  • A brief biodata for each of the proposed editors of the symposium.

  • The proposed date for submission.

The proposal should be sent by email to with the subject title “Proposal for Symposium” for consideration by the Editorial Committee. Please visit the Submissions page for further information.


SJLS accepts submissions on a rolling basis and publishes 2 issues a year in March and September.
