BLawG Submission

We invite submissions on a rolling basis throughout the calendar year from members of the bar, legal professionals, law students, or others who are interested in publishing with us and wish to further legal discourse.

Authors are expected to adhere to the following submission guidelines:

  • Blogs must contain content that is both original and unpublished.
  • Submissions can be in the form of articles, opinions, case comments and short notes on the aforementioned topics.
  • The manuscript shall not exceed more than 20% of Plagiarism.
  • The articles should be analytical rather than descriptive.
  • Please ensure that the title of the submission is not more than ten words long.
  • Articles should be submitted in Microsoft Word format (.doc or .docx).
  • We encourage the use of hyperlinks as opposed to footnotes. However, if your article contains sources that cannot be linked, please use Bluebook 19 edn. or 20 edn. style in the footnotes.
  • Except under extreme circumstances, we do not publish articles beyond 700-1400 words (excluding citations). Lengthier articles can be published in the form of Blog series with the permission of the editors.
  • We evaluate articles on three chief criteria: relevancy of the article, content of the article and language employed in the article. We tend to publish perspectives that are not adequately covered on other fora.
  • Formatting: Please use British English. To add emphasis, please italicise the text.

Submission Process:

  • All submissions for The EGLJ Blog must be uploaded via the Googe Form (Click here). Kindly DO NOT send submissions via email.
  • If possible also add the suggested category in the submission.
  • EGLJ Blog conducts a strict blind-peer review of the submissions received and holds absolute discretion in determining whether to accept a submission or not. We will send an email receipt upon acceptance as soon as possible.
