The BU Law Review (BULR) is Bournemouth University’s first open access legal journal, showcasing high quality legal analysis, debate and case comments written by Bournemouth University law students. The journal is co-created and edited by students and academics of the law department within the Faculty of Media and Communication at Bournemouth University, for the purpose of encouraging research and understanding of the law beyond the syllabus.

The publication is bi-annual with two issues per year, with each issue including a central article relating to a unique theme. For more information on how to submit your work, please see the submission tab.
