Founded in 1936, the Northern Ireland Legal Quarterly (NILQ) is a generalist peer-reviewed academic law journal that endeavours to provide critical insight into topics of interest to the legal profession throughout the United Kingdom and the world. The journal is published online four times a year and considers prospective articles on all areas of law and from all methodologies. At least one article per issue is made available on an open access basis. All articles become available on an open access basis one year after publication.

The editor invites submission of material with a view to publication in the NILQ. There is no submission deadline. Articles should not normally exceed 10,000 words. Please see our 'For authors' section for further details. The journal regularly publishes special issues in all areas of law and socio-legal studies. If you would like to discuss your idea for a special issue, please contact the editor (details below).

Practitioners, parliamentarians, members of the judiciary as well as academics at all stages of postgraduate study including professional researchers are invited to contribute to the NILQ.
