Kutafin University Law Review


Kutafin University Law Review (KULawR) is an academic peer-reviewed law journal published by Kutafin Moscow State Law University. KULawR was established in March 2014 and is currently published twice a year.

We are particularly committed to publishing the academic work, in English, of Academics and Practitioners, for whom English is their non-native language.  The development of skills to work in English in the legal sphere is critical for the modern lawyer.  KuLawR is dedicated to supporting anyone who wishes to develop this.  You will find a positive and warm welcome from our Editorial Team - who will support and guide you through to publication.

We have three types of submissions which we invite you to share with us - full details of which can be found on our Submissions page.  These are full articles, case reports, and book reviews - offering authors three different types of scholarship and three different quantities of material to suit their stage of development in Legal English. 

A few words about our support.  If you have an idea, we will be happy to meet you and discuss what you want to do.  Our native speakers of English will proof read your drafts for free, and offer positive and constructive critiques as you proceed.  Our objective is - as our University Motto says - "Not for School, but for Life!".  So we are committed to helping our authors achieve academic excellence and professional fluency skills which can be used professionally - most especially if it is in their non-native language.

We very much hope that this message encourages you to get in touch with us, and become one of our esteemed and honoured contributers!  We will be delighted to hear from you.

With every kind wish from all of us at KuLawR and Moscow State University of Law named afer O.E.Kutafin!
