The Utrecht Law Review is an electronic open-access journal which aims to offer an international scientific platform for cross-border legal research. In the first place, this concerns research in which the boundaries of the classic branches of the law (private law, criminal law, constitutional and administrative law, European and public international law) are crossed and connections are made between these areas of the law, amongst others from a comparative law perspective. In addition, the journal welcomes research in which classic law is brought face to face with not strictly legal disciplines such as economics, political sciences and public administration science. The Utrecht Law Review is not a specialist journal. Each year, in January, a general issue appears including contributions on a variety of (legal) topics. In June, a special issue appears on a specific theme which is based on one of the research programmes at the Utrecht School of Law.

The Editorial Board consists of renowned and young researchers, representing the various disciplines at the Utrecht School of Law, and one student member. Academic quality and the international character of the journal are guaranteed by the Scientific Council, which consists of national and foreign experts in all branches of legal science. All academic articles that are submitted are subjected to anonymous peer review.
