Dr Peter Whelan Joins the Editorial Board of New Journal of European Criminal Law

24 June 2014 | Peter Edwards

Dr Peter Whelan, an Associate Professor in Law and the Deputy Director of the Centre for Criminal Justice Studies at the University of Leeds, has taken up a position on the Editorial Board of the New Journal of European Criminal Law.

The New Journal of European Criminal Law is the leading international journal on European Criminal Law. It aims at analysing, discussing, defining, developing and improving criminal law in Europe and in particular criminal law as it is drawn up by the European Union and the Council of Europe. 

The New Journal of European Criminal Law has two patrons: the European Criminal Bar Association (ECBA) and the European Criminal Law Academic Network (ECLAN). It serves as a forum for both legal practitioners and academics interested in issues related to European Criminal Law. Its editorial board comprises as wide a cross-section of the legal profession as possible. 

The New Journal of European Criminal Law solicits articles from all those involved in criminal law in its European dimension. It seeks a large variety of articles, ranging from short case notes with little or no comment, to opinionated comments on developments to long in-depth critiques of judgments and legislative measures with proposals for reform or change.
