Call for Submissions to the University of New South Wales Law Journal Issue 43(3)

19 Sep 2019

2020 Thematic: ‘Revitalising Legal Authorities’

The UNSW Law Journal is currently welcoming submissions for Issue 43(3). The Issue will be solely thematic, with articles directed to the theme ‘Revitalising Legal Authorities’.

Legal authorities are indisputably significant as the conceptual bases upon which well-reasoned legal deliberations are made and justified. To revitalise legal authorities is to introduce new vigour into the capabilities of the law for future practice. Considering legal authorities in all their forms, the Journal seeks to elicit contributions which not only consider important, more commonly discussed modes of legal revitalisation such as statutory enactment and precedent-making in the courts, but also those which address unconventional recommendations for pursuing the betterment of future legal authorities.

The submission deadline for the thematic Issue 43(3) is 21 February 2020, with publication of Issue 43(3) set for late September 2020. Articles must be between 7000 and 13 000 words in length (excluding footnotes). The style guide for the Journal is the current edition of the Australian Guide to Legal Citation, as supplemented by the latest edition of the Journal’s ‘Additions’. Please visit our submissions page here for further submissions guidelines and to submit.

If you have any queries about submitting for Issue 43(3), please contact the Journal at
