The Dalhousie Journal of Legal Studies is a non-profit, academic journal that publishes work from current law students and recent alumni in Canada and throughout the world. It was established in 1991 as a forum that promotes reflection and debate about contemporary legal issues. As one of the only publications of its kind in Canada, the Journal serves as a unique vehicle for law students to publish their work.
The DJLS is published once per academic year and maintains a broad subscription base that includes law firms, law school libraries, corporations, government departments, alumni, and legal professionals from around the globe. The Journal is also indexed in the HeinOnline database.
An entirely student-run publication, the DJLS is managed by an editorial board, and over seventy volunteers comprising students from the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie assist in production and publication.
The Dalhousie Journal of Legal Studies publishes articles, case comments, and notes that deal with issues relating to either Canadian or international law. All submissions are blindly reviewed. Submissions are primarily assessed based on originality, relevance to the profession of law, and writing style.
With a large circulation and subscriber base, the Dalhousie Journal of Legal Studies is widely available. Enquiries about joining our subscription base as an institutional, business, or personal subscriber can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Subscriptions to the DJLS are $30.00 (CAD) per issue.
The Journal is also available electronically through the HeinOnline law journal database.
