The ENBAR LAW JOURNAL (A Publication of the Nigerian Bar Association, Enugu Branch) is inviting submissions on scholarly and well-researched papers in any field of Law for publication in the Third Issue, Volume 1 of the ENBAR Law Journal.

Manuscripts could include:

  • Articles,
  • Case comments/reviews, and
  • Book reviews.

Manuscripts should not normally exceed 8000 words. However, longer papers may also be considered in certain cases, but in no case should a manuscript exceed 25 pages on A4 papers. Well-researched articles from Law students will be considered, as a way of encouraging the younger ones.


  1. Manuscripts submitted for consideration must not be under consideration or peer review or accepted for publication or published elsewhere and, if accepted, it should not then be published elsewhere in the same form of its publication in the ENBAR LAW JOURNAL. If previously published figures, tables, or parts of text are to be included, the copyright-holder’s permission must have been obtained prior to publication. Authors should send a single file containing the complete manuscript (i.e. abstract, text, figures and tables), as this makes the reviewing process easier for editors and referees.
  2. The title page, information about the author, institutional affiliation and email should be on a cover page as a separate document. The authors’ names should appear centred under the title.
  3. Manuscripts must be clearly written in UK English and should be submitted in an electronic format in Microsoft Word.
