Contemporary Issues in Law provides a new and exciting way of exploring the changing dynamics of the law. The journal is designed to cover a broad spectrum of topical issues, which are set within the framework of a common theme.
Each issue focuses on one theme. The implications of this theme on different
areas of current legal concern are then explored. By discussing different issues
of contemporary legal interest in relation to a theme in this way, a number
of apparently separate issues are drawn together under the same topical umbrella.
The result is a coherent framework which offers the reader a clear overview
of the broader thematic influences on the law generally whilst also focusing
more specifically on current manifestations of this influence at work in specific
areas of current concern.

The Contaminated Blood Scandal
In the 1970s and 1980s, thousands of people with haemophilia were infected with Hepatitis C and the HIV virus after receiving contaminated blood products through the NHS. Patients were given products that had been imported from the United States, where paid donors included individuals from high-risk groups. A public inquiry into the contaminated blood scandal commenced in April 2019, and is expected to hear evidence from affected patients, families, healthcare professionals and other experts.
The Editors of Contemporary Issues in Law invite submissions that explore the topic of the contaminated blood inquiry. These can draw on any related legal or ethical aspect (for example, criminal negligence, compensation, liability).
Papers should be 8,000-10,000 words (including footnotes)
Submission deadline: Ongoing
Submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
