Winner the 2016 Award

The BIALL Legal Journals Award has been awarded to the Edinburgh Law Review.

Professor Martin Hogg received the award from Karen Palmer, President of BIALL, at BIALL’s First Night Dinner which took place at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Dublin on the 9th June 2016. Reflecting the thoughts and deliberations of the Adjudication Panel for this award, Karen Palmer said:

This year’s winning title stood out for the scope and depth of its content, combining the very best in traditional academic legal journal publishing in editorial authority, layout and quality of indexing with a broad range of original contributions advancing contemporary scholarship in the law of its principal jurisdiction.

I’m pleased to announce that the 2016 BIALL Legal Journals Award goes to The Edinburgh Law Review, and invite the journal’s editor, Professor Martin Hogg of the University of Edinburgh, to accept the award on behalf of the publishers Edinburgh University Press.
