The Legal Education Review is an independent, refereed
Journal. Its objectives are (1) to encourage and
disseminate within Australia & internationally high
quality research into legal education and;(2) to inform and stimulate discussion, debate
and experimentation on topics
related to legal education.
Call for Papers
The Editorial Committee of the Legal Education Review invites submissions to the next edition of the Review.
Articles submitted to the Review should
(1) be an original and scholarly analysis and evaluation of a legal education topic, and
(2) demonstrate awareness of and familiarity with contemporary legal education scholarship by including references to the relevant literature (in the AGLC style). Where the topic of the article is an innovative approach to teaching law, the article should include details of: (1) the justification for the approach; (2) scholarly support for the approach; (3) an objective evaluation of the approach; and (4) the practical implications of the approach.
Published articles are typically in the range of 4,000 to 10,000 words. The Committee prefers that any article be written in 3rd person, that gender-inclusive language be used, and that words and phrases in languages other than English be used only when necessary, with translations included. Citations must be consistent with the Australian Guide to Legal Citation (AGLC) - 3rd ed. Articles not consistent with the AGLC 3rd Edition will not be accepted. An abstract (100-200 words) is required, but a bibliography is not.
The Editorial Committee welcomes proposals to publish special issues of the Review containing articles on a theme written by groups of authors. Examples of recent special issue themes include the research/teaching nexus (2012), critical legal education (2013) and the teaching of public law (2015). Please note that all papers submitted for such special issues will still be independently refereed prior to publication.
