About Neith Law & Humanities Review (NLHR)

NLHR is an open-access, peer-reviewed collection of online blog posts covering contemporary discourse alongside a tri-annual journal including long form content that adds to and aids existing scholarship. Neith functions with the express aim of encouraging authors of all backgrounds, regardless of academic or professional level, to publish work delving into the legal sphere and the humanities (as well as the vast parley between them). Fresh voices and first-time authors pursuing their undergraduate education are welcomed, alongside scholars, graduates, and other working professionals.

Neith acknowledges that several critical fields within both law and the humanities are often left understated. In order to do our part to bridge that gap, the journal values all contributions to the realms of sociology, political science, economics, history, art, psychology, anthropology, English literature, and all the areas that link them together, especially those that the mainstream has glossed over to a relative degree even within the legal field. Examples of the same include papers and notes that attempt to analyse dimensions within Sports Law, Marine Law, International Environmental Law, etc. Individuality is encouraged, and Neith recommends that all authors attempt to place a unique spin on the work submitted for Volume 1, Issue 2 of the journal.

In order to ensure accessibility, a mere publication fee of ?500 only will be charged, only after the selection of the manuscript.
