Established in 2017, Whitelocke Publications is a renowned independent publishing house with a strong international focus which provides a unique service to its authors. Named after the 17th century English lawyer and parliamentarian Bulstrode Whitelocke, it specialises in academic books in all aspects of law and legal studies, from human rights law to international law to forensic medicine to environmental law and beyond. We are advocates for writers at all stages of their careers and are committed to diversity. The company is completely independent and open to all ideas and stances. Our authors are based across the globe. We are particularly interested in authors who have never published before, authors whose first language is not English and authors who wish to penetrate the English-speaking market. Due to the commitment of our staff, we hope that we can publish more effectively and efficiently than some of the more established UK publishers. We are able to deal with our clients at a faster rate on a more personalised level. Whitelocke also offers the exceptional service of linguistic editing for authors whose level of English may have prevented their work from being considered by other publishers. Headquartered in the UK (Oxford), Whitelocke Publications takes a supportive and enabling approach with authors and send copies of their books to leading libraries and for review in academic journals.
