The Modern Law Review


The Modern Law Review is a general, peer-refereed journal that publishes original articles relating to common law jurisdictions and, increasingly, to the law of the European Union. In addition to publishing articles in all branches of the law, the Review contains sections devoted to recent legislation and reports, case analysis, and review articles and book reviews.
Since its foundation over sixty-five years ago, The Modern Law Review has been providing a unique forum for the critical examination of contemporary legal issues and of the law as it functions in society, and today ranks as one of Europe's leading scholarly journals.

Coverage: 1937-2012 (Vol. 1, No. 1 - Vol. 75, No. 6)

Moving Wall: 5 years (What is the moving wall?)

The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal. Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.

Terms Related to the Moving Wall
Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive.
Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title.
Complete: Journals that are no longer published or that have been combined with another title.
