The DCU Socio-Legal Studies Review is accepting submissions for its inaugural volume.

This is the only such review in Ireland, and represents a unique platform for work by scholars and practitioners in this area.

This includes empirical and theoretical research both at the national and international level, focusing on the social, cultural and economic context in which laws are made and enforced.
