The Modern Law Review
The Modern Law Review was established in 1937 as a charity devoted to the promotion of legal education, the study of law and all other arts and sciences which may be of interest to those involved in the study or practice of law. MLR promotes these objectives by the publication of the law review and also by the organisation of lectures, seminars, scholarships and prizes that support legal education and scholarship.
The activities of the MLR are undertaken by an Editorial Committee. The work of the Committee is overseen and supported by an Editorial Board.
More detailed information concerning our various activities, the administrative arrangements of the MLR, and the articles, notes and reviews published in the Modern Law Review are to be found on the following pages.
The Foundation of the MLR
In celebration of its fiftieth anniversary, MLR in 1987 published a special issue on Legal Scholarship in the Common Law World. Two of the contributions to that issue contain reflections on the foundation and early history of The Modern Law Review. These papers can be accessed below:
