Keep Calm Talk Law is a forward-thinking modern take on the traditional law journal, with a unique ethos and unique values.

Click a value below for more information.


We take contributions from both aspiring and practising lawyers.

We do not assume prior knowledge of the topic at hand, making our law journal uniquely accessible to non-lawyers, students and practising lawyers alike.

We will never charge for online access.


We give passionate people the ability to publish their views to a wide audience, where otherwise they might not have had the chance.

Contributors are given the opportunity to develop practical skills from an early stage in their career.

Readers receive high quality legal commentary, without costly subscription fees.


We provide contributors with unrivalled editorial support. Each article receives on average two hours of editorial review.

We support our readers by providing them with a wide breadth of commentary, allowing them to keep up to date with legal developments outside of their everyday practice area or profession.


We take the best aspects of traditional legal publishing, and combine them with the 21st Century.

We start from the bottom up. Modern practising lawyers often want the same as lay people; less academics, more practice, and more opinion.

We encourage contributors to be thought leaders, thus starting discussions on important issues.
