The Criminal Justice Theory Blog is the initiative of Dr Liat Levanon (Dickson Poon School of Law, King’s College, London) and Dr Mark Dsouza (Faculty of Laws, University College London).

We welcome pitches for guest blogposts on any aspect of criminal justice theory and philosophy broadly conceived. Posts may relate to general concepts in the criminal justice (e.g. the concept of intention in substantive criminal law, or reversals of burdens of proof, or the scope of criminal appeals) or to more specific criminal justice issues (e.g. when does mere preparation segue into a criminal attempt, or issues of proof in conspiracy cases, or the claims to a right to anonymity for complainants and defendants in sexual offence trials). In general, posts should be up to 3000 words long and be written with accessibility to a non-specialist audience in mind. We encourage posts that are not merely descriptive, but also advance interesting arguments (which may be sketches, rather than a fully worked out ideas). Blogposts may, but do not have to, include footnotes/endnotes.

Please contact the editors to pitch your idea.
