On the 19th of February Paul Tominey, Keiran Wilson and Craig Hawthorne, as representatives of the Edinburgh Student Law Review, had the pleasure of attending the Trinity College Dublin Law Student Colloquium 2011.

The event, organised annually by an all-student committee, provides a forum for students of all levels to present academic papers and engage in invigorating legal debate in an informal setting. The theme of the event was "Rethinking Law" and included presentations from 35 speakers on issues as diverse as French, Indian and UK constitutional law, company law, family law, international law, intellectual property, medical ethics and jurisprudence.

This event is in keeping with a growing trend of increased student participation in writing and debating legal issues in an extra-curricular context. In 2008 ESLR was founded as the second student run law review in the UK, with the aim of encouraging students to take a critical and analytical approach to legal study, and is now one of several such publications across the UK and Ireland. By attending the Colloquium Paul, Keiran and Craig had the opportunity to raise awareness of ESLR, garner a wider range of submissions and promote Edinburgh Law School as a leading European law school.

The Editorial Board of ESLR commends the students of Trinity College Dublin for organising this excellent event, and heartily recommends it to any students interested undertaking postgraduate legal study or entering academia.
