WORKING PAPER SERIES

The Legal Resources Centre, South Africa’s largest public interest organisation, invites you to submit papers for the Working Paper Series.

The WPS was established to encourage people from within the organisation, as well as interns, academics and people working in the public-interest law sector, to submit academic papers on current legal, human rights and constitutional topics for publication. The WPS also provides the opportunity for candidate attorneys and interns to hone their writing and reasoning skills and gives attorneys and paralegals the opportunity to discuss their work at an academic level. Working papers provide writers with the opportunity to test their ideas in a public forum and to alter or expand their reasoning for possible further publication.

Submissions may take the form of a working paper, book review or case report. Submissions must be e-mailed to claire@lrc.org.za.

The WPS is peer-reviewed by an in-house editorial board and working papers are expected to be of a high standard. Please note that only papers drafted in accordance with the WPS style guide will be considered. The style guide can be emailed to anyone interested.
