The official launch ceremony of the Aberdeen Student Law Review Vol 6 (November 2015 issue) was held on Monday 14 December at the Sir Duncan Rice Library. The launch was an opportunity to recognise the meticulous work of everyone who assisted in shaping this Volume and to celebrate the contribution that the ASLR makes to Aberdeen University’s vibrant legal research community.
The event, which was attended by, among others, the Head of Aberdeen Law School, Ms Anne Michelle Slater, and Mr James Downie of Stronachs LLP, consisted of various short presentations by the published authors and socialising thereafter.
In his opening statement, the Managing Editor of the ASLR, Constantinos Yiallourides, highlighted the significance of legal research and topical legal writing in legal education and extended his gratitude to Stronachs LLP and Aberdeen Law School for their continuing assistance in making this publication possible.
Particular congratulations should be extended to DPLP student Emily Young, who won the ‘Stronachs LLP Student Excellence Award’ for the best contribution. Her paper is entitled ’Britain Goes to War: An Analysis of the Developing Role of the House of Commons in Determining Whether HM Forces Should Be Deployed on Military Operations’. The prize will be a two-week work placement with Stronachs LLP at a time mutually agreeable between the awardee and Stronachs LLP.
A limited number of print-copies of the ASLR are available for collection from the Law School (C41).
