UCD Law Review

About Us



The University College Dublin Law Review, established in 2001, is Ireland’s leading student-run law journal.


The Review is published on an annual basis, and features articles on a variety of legal topics. The objective of our journal

is to publish articles by undergraduate and postgraduate students, along with practitioners, from within Ireland, and abroad.

We hope that the original content of the journal will contribute to legal scholarship, and stimulate academic debate. The latest

volume of the Review is launched every Autumn by a prominent member of the legal community.


The Review is managed by the Editor-in-Chief and members of the Editorial Board, which consists of undergraduate and postgraduate

law students. Our Academic Advisors, Dr. Kevin Costello, Dr. Noel McGrath, as well as Dr. Niamh Howlin, provide additional guidance. This is a unique platform for

promoting academic debate and commentary, and also offers the opportunity for Board members to refine their research and editing skills.


The Editorial Board of the Review would like to express its sincere thanks to our primary sponsors, Arthur Cox Solicitors, who have provided

continuous support since the inception of the Review in 2001. We would also like to acknowledge A&L Goodbody Solicitors,

the sponsor of our Most Outstanding Article Prize, which awards €500 to the winning author.


Previous editions of the UCD Law Review are available from the Editor. Alternatively, the Review can be accessed via HeinOnline.
