Aston Student Law Review

The Aston Student Law Review is a journal created by Aston Law School to showcase the best essays from current Aston Law students, as well as any other pieces of work that they may contribute. 

The Aston Student Law Review features essays written by Aston Law School students on a variety of issues. As explained by Dr Daniel Cash, Editor-in-Chief:

“The Review enables us to celebrate the excellent work of our students.  Previous editions have included essays on many different topics, addressing issues of law that students have come across as part of their studies and other issues of practical significance that students have found to be of interest to them.”
