The Strathclyde Law Review is a student-led organisation, formed with the purpose of showcasing and disseminating legal scholarship in Scotland and beyond.
The Strathlcyde Law Review would like to extend its gratitude to the University of Strathclyde Alumni Fund. The funding that was provided to our publication was vital to the success that we all enjoyed last year. The Strathclyde Law Review has become an ever-expanding organisation with contacts from all around the world. None of this would be possible without the sources of funding such as the Alumni Fund which allows each and every student volunteer to have a more enriching and memorable experience within our organisation.
