The Singapore Journal of Legal Studies
Call for Special Feature/Symposia Proposals
is the flagship law journal of the Faculty of Law,
National University of Singapore and one of the oldest law
journals in the Commonwealth. As the first and leading legal
journal in Singapore, it contains a rich store of legal
literature analysing the legal, political and social development
of Singapore in its progression from a developing to a First
World nation. The journal continues to advance the boundaries
of global and local developments in law, policy and legal
practice by publishing cogent and timely articles, legislation
comments and case notes on a biannual basis.
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.
