Information for Authors

The Review prefers that all papers are written in 3rd person, that gender-inclusive language is used, that words and phrases in languages other than English are used only when necessary and that translations are included.

Citation is strictly according to the Australian Guide to Legal Citation (AGLC) 3rd Ed. Any submissions not complying with the AGLC 3rd Edition will not be accepted. All citations must be in footnotes. A bibliography is not required.

An abstract should be provided when you submit your article (100-200 words).

There is no specific word limit for articles. However, published articles are typically in the range of 4,000-10,000 words.

The Review follows a double-blind refereeing process and authors should not refer to their own work in a way that identifies them to referees.

It is our policy to upload articles from previous volumes to the ALTA Law Research Series (ALRS). Authors may object, and their article will be removed accordingly.

All 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:

  • The justification for the approach;
  • Scholarly support for the approach;
  • An objective evaluation of the approach; and
  • The practical implications of the approach.
