Since its formation in 1937, The Modern Law Review has provided a unique forum for the promotion of legal education and scholarship. These objects have been promoted not only through the publication of the law journal but also by the organization and funding of lectures, seminars and other scholarly activities.


The Modern Law Review Seminars

Since 1998, The Modern Law Review has been allocating funding, which is currently in the region of £35,000 per annum, to support scholarly seminars on any subject broadly within the publishing interests of the Review. The funds are allocated through competitive bids each year. For further details and information on how to apply for funding, click here:
