UWA Law Review



The University of Western Australia Law Review (UWA Law Review) is Australia's oldest University Law Journal, first published in 1948.

It provides a forum for the airing of articles on topics of current national and international legal significance. Each alternate issue addresses a theme of contemporary moment. These thematic issues alternate with a general issue. The general issue comprises articles of general legal interest and provides a forum for publications with a Western Australian focus.

The UWA Law Review is included in the Australasian Legal Scholarship Library which is one of the largest collections of legal scholarship on the web.

All articles in the Library are also included in the LawCite international citatory. Articles may be searched for by journal (citation), author, or article name.

The UWA Law Review is edited by a Student Editorial Board under the supervision of a senior member of the Academic Staff and benefits from the advice of a distinguished Editorial Advisory Board.

Rigorous editorial standards are applied by the UWA Law Review, including a double-blind refereeing process.

In 2015 the UWA Law Review became a digital only publication.
