About the Review
The Melbourne University Law Review is one of Australia's leading generalist law journals. Submissions to the Review are subject to independent, anonymous peer review prior to acceptance for publication. The Review is published three times a year and is managed by an Editorial Board comprising students of the Melbourne Law School at The University of Melbourne.
The Annual Lecture is part of an ongoing effort by the Review to increase its engagement with the legal community.
The Review has always enjoyed strong support from academia and the legal profession. Recently, members of the Review have expressed a keen interest in improving the Review's engagement with, and contribution to, community legal work and social justice issues. In response to this interest, the Review established a Community Program in 2013.
The Review gratefully acknowledges the combined support of our sponsors.
The Review welcomes submissions on all areas of law. Academics, legal practitioners and law students within Australia and overseas are encouraged to submit.
The Melbourne University Law Review supports a policy of open access to legal scholarship. Articles from recent issues of the Review will be made available electronically on this site. This is a work in progress. Subscriptions are available for hard copy issues, and back issues are also available. Our entire archive is also available for free on Austlii.
