               Welcome to the IALS Student Law Review

                                      Tugce Yalcin


Welcome  to 2020's first issue of the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies' Student Law Review (ISLRev),
the University of London. This issue has some fascinating articles which deal with hotly debated topics
and will be detailed in brief in a moment. However, this issue also represents a changing of the guard
as a new Editorial Board has been elected. We would like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves
and also outline and explain the exciting plans we have for the future of the ISLRev.

Before we introduce ourselves, we would like to thank the outgoing Editor-in-Chief, Lovinia Otudor, for
her work for the ISLRev. We wish you all the best for your future plans.

This year, ISLRev is fortunate to have one Editor-in-Chief, an Academic Editor, a Deputy Editor and an
Associate Editor. We would like to take a moment to introduce each in turn:

The  Editor-in-Chief is Tugce Yalcin. She is a lawyer working for a global law firm and is specialised in
Corporate Law, cross-border M&A  and financial transactions as well as Commercial Law, Investment
Law  and European  Law. She  is currently a PhD candidate at IALS researching about Warranty and
Disclosure of Information in M&A Transactions in the Light of the Theory of Contract Law - Comparison
of the Common  Law  and the Civil Law.

Our  Deputy  Editor for this year is Emmanuel Saffa Abdulai. Emmanuel is a lecturer in media law,
academic  legal writing, and Rule of Law, Justice and Peace Building at the Fourah Bay  College,
University of Sierra Leone. He is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal on Human Rights Law in Sierra Leone.
Emmanuel   is currently a second  year PhD  candidate  at IALS specialising in constitutional and
administrative law.

Our  Associate  Editor for this year is George M. Daoud.  George  has a  background  in the Law
Enforcement, Financial, and is currently in the Legal industry as a practitioner in Canada. He is currently
a PhD  candidate at IALS, focusing on International Financial Law with an emphasis on Emerging
Technologies and its effect on the sophistication of Money/Cyber laundering practices.

We  are fortunate to be joined by Professor Anton Cooray from City, the University of London. He acts
in the role of Academic Editor of the ISLRev.

As we  have said, there are big plans ahead for the ISLRev this year. We plan to open up the journal
and improve access to all postgraduate students in the UK and, possibly, abroad. This, we are hoping,
will attract fascinating articles from the widest possible spectrum of legal expertise.

The opening  up of the Journal will be accompanied by an increased number of engagement events.
We  aim  to provide these events several times  within an academic  year and  will bring together
academics, practitioners and students to share their perspectives as well as advice on publishing while
also giving attendees a chance to network. Please do keep an eye out for more information.

Finally, for each issue of the ISLRev going forward, the Editor-in-Chief will alternate writing an editorial
opinion piece at the beginning of each issue. These will give a broad overview of relevant legal topics
alongside the articles included in the respective issue.
