Aims and Scope: Feminist Legal Studies

Feminist Legal Studies is committed to an internationalist perspective and to the promotion and advancement of feminist scholarship in all areas of law. It aims to publish critical, interdisciplinary, theoretically engaged feminist scholarship relating to law (broadly conceived) and has a particular interest in work that extends feminist debates and analysis by reference to critical and theoretical approaches and perspectives, including postcolonial, transnational and poststructuralist work. 

Although the focus of the journal is law, the editorial board encourages the submission of papers from people working outside the academy, as well as academics other than lawyers as well as interdisciplinary work addressing the concerns not only of lawyers but others, women and men, interested in feminist work. The editorial board is a collective drawn from feminists working at leading law schools across the UK. A full list of the editorial board can found on the Journal’s website: http://www.springer.com/law/international/journal/10691?detailsPage=editorialBoard

Alongside traditional articles and book reviews Feminist Legal Studies is committed to publishing material that challenges conventional forms of academic writing/knowledge and encourages creative approaches to scholarship, analysis and debate. Such material is normally published in our “Creative Content” section (see Instructions for Authors for more details). The board also welcomes proposals for themed issues of the journal.
