We welcome the submission of articles for consideration by the Editor with a view to publication. In general, the most acceptable length of articles for The Criminal Law Review is 3,000–4,000 words and the normal maximum 5,000 words. However, shorter contributions will be welcomed and longer ones may be considered for publication.

The Criminal Law Review also welcomes short notes for its ''Current Topics'' section. These should deal with issues of practical relevance, and should be no longer than 1,500 words.      

Papers to be considered for publication should be sent to Professor David Ormerod at crimlreditor@gmail.com. Submission of a paper will be held to imply that it contains original unpublished work and is not being submitted for publication elsewhere. All contributions must be sent at the owner's risk. Every effort will be made to return unused material, but no guarantee can be given in this respect.
