The Queen's Law Journal

The Queen's Law Journal is one of Canada's leading peer-reviewed legal publications.

Since 1971, the Queen's Law Journal has been a vehicle for high quality research, analysis and critical commentary by legal scholars, practitioners and students. 

The Queen's Law Journal strives to foster diversity of opinion on a wide variety of legal issues by publishing inter-disciplinary perspectives on legal topics and encouraging submissions from a range of writers and students. It is run by a student board of editors under the supervision of Professors Jean Thomas and Grégoire Webber.

As a fully refereed and bilingual law review, the Queen's Law Journal has become a respected academic publication with an international audience. The Queen's Law Journal can be accessed in numerous legal databases, including LexisNexis, HeinOnline, Gale, WestLaw, EBSCO.
