QM Law and Business Journal

The QM Law and Business Journal 'The Sophists' is a student magazine produced by students on the MSc Law and Finance programme at Queen Mary. The Sophists offers a fresh perspective on the interplay between law, politics and economics and allows students to participate and debate current topics. Its primary purpose is to offer readers a critical and engaging perspective on current affairs, whilst also providing a platform on which they can express their views and challenge deep-rooted and dogmatic assumptions, in the tradition of the sophists of Ancient Greece.
