Australian Journal of Legal History
There may be minor differences between the printed and electronic versions of the Journal. Each document has two forms of citation. One refers to the print citation and the other refers to the medium neutral citation. For example, in the reference " On the Possibility of Impartiality in Decision-Making -  AJLH 2; (2004) 4 Australian Journal of Legal History 7", the medium neutral citation is " AJLH 2" and the print citation is "(2004) 4 Australian Journal of Legal History 7". Please refer to AustLII's explanation of medium neutral citations for more information. You may consider using both for ease of cross referencing.
The Australian Journal of Legal History is published twice annually.
The Division of Law at Macquarie University is proud to add to its growing stable of academic journals the Australian Journal of Legal History. The bi-annual journal, which was previously produced at the University of Adelaide, has now moved to its new home at Macquarie Law. As its editor, Dr Andrew Buck, explains: “This is an exciting development which builds upon the research and teaching strengths in legal history at Macquarie. The addition of the journal now establishes the Division of Law at Macquarie as the premier institution for the study of legal history in Australia.”
As Dr Buck explains, the journal is committed to the belief that scholars from different disciplines and different jurisdictions can and should engage in a fruitful dialogue. In this sense, legal history is a broad church and the Australian Journal of Legal History encourages scholarship from a wide diversity of periods and jurisdictions. The only constant is quality.
Dr Buck has expanded the editorial board, which now includes some of the world’s leading legal historians. While continuing to showcase the finest legal-historical scholarship from Australia, the journal encourages submissions from all jurisdictions. With recent and forthcoming articles on Canada, New Zealand, and the United States, the Australian Journal of Legal History is dedicated to publishing the high quality research of those scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds who are interested in the dynamic relationship between law and history. With the publication of its first two issues at Macquarie, the Australian Journal of Legal History is poised to become one of the world’s leading historical journals.
Volume 9, Number 1 is due for publication late June, Volume 9, Number 2 in December.
