Kenya Law Review - Call for Papers


The National Council for Law Reporting is calling for papers for the Kenya Law Review Journal. The Journal provides a forum for the scholarly analysis of Kenyan law and interdisciplinary academic research on the law.

The focus of the Journal is on studies of the legal system and analyses of contemporary legal issues with particular emphasis on the article's substantive contribution to understanding some aspect of the country's legal system. The Editorial Policy of the Journal is to be non-ideological and with a multi-disciplinary outlook, to include articles showing the interplay between the law and other disciplines.

The Editor of the Kenya Law Reports therefore welcomes scholarly work from legal scholars, judicial officers, legal practitioners, students, law and society scholars (including criminology, psychology, sociology, and other social sciences) to submit articles for consideration. Submissions for publication will be received on a rolling basis.
The selection committee, composed of the editorial board of the Journal, will review and consider all submissions for publication and the contributors will be given notification of the acceptance of their works for publication in the Journal.

The papers should be written in English and submitted both in signed paper copy and in soft copy as an editable word - processed computer file. The submission should conform to academic citation standards, be no longer than 12,000 words, and include an abstract of up to 350 words.

The submissions should include:

I. The author’s full names and contacts;
II. A declaration of originality;
III. A statement of whether the work has been previously published or tendered for publication in any other publication and where this is the case, the name of the publisher and the date of publication;
IV. A statement that the author consents to the publication of the work by the National Council for Law Reporting

All submissions and enquiries should be addressed to:
