The St Andrews Law Journal is fully committed to respect and fair treatment for everyone, eliminating discrimination and actively promoting equality of opportunity and delivering fairness to all.

The Journal is omitted to equality, diversity and inclusion. To us, diversity means an array of values, experiences, and viewpoints arising from differences in, age, disability, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, religion or belief, caring backgrounds, professional experience and much more. We strive for diversity in our publications.

Academia depends on the open exchange of ideas. In determining what legal scholarship is published, the Journal, therefore, carries with it a great deal of responsibility. We welcome contributions that express diverse and new perspectives and encourage authors who are traditionally underrepresented in this field to submit work. We consider all submissions equally.

To realize the abovementioned values, we maintain an Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Board position that undertakes the following diversity initiatives:

  • Create diversity-related policies and goals
  • Ensure an updated awareness of EDI through training
  • Establish a way to educate the article selection team on the importance of diverse viewpoints in legal scholarship

We hope to develop and implement more initiatives to improve the diversity and inclusion of our scholarship.
