The UNSW Law Journal is one of Australia’s leading academic legal journals, and one of the few to be produced entirely by a voluntary student board. It is the flagship publication of the UNSW Faculty of Law and one of the most widely cited legal reviews in Australia.
The Journal publishes four issues annually. Each issue contains a General component, made up of articles on a broad range of legal topics, with some issues also featuring a Thematic component, which focuses and brings together a range of perspectives on a single subject.
Journals are launched in a public event at the premises of one of our Premier Sponsors, including top-tier law firms Allens, Herbert Smith Freehills and King & Wood Mallesons. Launch events are widely attended and feature a keynote address by a leading member of the legal profession.
The Editorial Board is the body of students responsible for the production of the UNSW Law Journal.
The responsibilities of General Members of the Editorial Board include:
Recruitment to the Editorial Board comprises a three-stage process:
Applicants must have at least two semesters of university remaining to complete on campus in Sydney at the time of applying. While a strong interest in editing academic articles is essential, prior editing experience is not.
Send applications via email with the subject heading ‘Application for UNSWLJ Board’.
Relevant training will be provided.
