The Osgoode Hall Law Journal has been publishing continuously since 1958 and is currently run by a student board of editors with a faculty editor-in-chief.


The Journal has earned a reputation for excellence in publishing scholarly articles that represent a wide range of perspectives about law and legal institutions and for providing thorough, meticulous, and efficient editorial services to our authors. We aim to provide an interdisciplinary forum for legal innovation and for provocative approaches to legal knowledge.


This ambitious mandate distinguishes us from other law journals and legal publications. We focus on publishing articles that present new theoretical generalizations, report empirical findings, or address the impact of legal developments on issues of social, political, or economic importance from a wide array of disciplinary and ideological perspectives. In addition to notable Canadian scholarship, the Journal publishes submissions from authors around the world who offer international or comparative perspectives.
