  • The Heretic

    This is a journal run by Divinity Undergraduates for Divinity Undergraduates in the University of St Andrews to discuss ideas, topics, and even academic publications pertaining to Divinity.

    This Journal publishes short articles by you and will be reviewed by our team of Undergraduate reviewers. This Journal gives you the opportunity to practice writing for the public domain, to flesh out ideas and opinions and have them challenged by a peer, something as Undergraduates we don’t usually get to do.


  • St Andrews Law Journal

    The St Andrews Law Journal is a student led publication, our work comprising a variety of investigations into historic and contemporary matters within law and legal culture. We operate an editorial double-blind peer-review, and our published by the Institute of Legal and Constitutional Research, University of St Andrews. The Law Journal asks contributors to write an investigation of something they are genuinely interested in exploring, whether it be of academic or more casual focus, and placing that topic within a legal context: what are the laws governing the issue?; how has the evolution - or degradation - of this interest impacted the wider world, or demographics, specifically? Our editors are here to help guide contributors on elaborating on the pressing and passive legal considerations, doing so - we hope - will make law a more interesting and accessible subject for both our writers and readers.
