Writing for Combat Law
What You Can Write About
An opposition to human rights abuses and to all forms of exploitation, a political and confrontational style, substantial legal content, a humanitarian law foundation, an international perspective, incisive insider reporting – these are some of the things we look for in articles. The magazine endeavours to cover contemporary issues from a wide geographical spread.
