Although the WASLR follows in the tradition of other student publications by exclusively publishing the work of law students, it is unique in that it accepts submissions from students of any of Western Australia’s five law schools. Publication of the WASLR is electronic and open access. Issues are available through this website and via AustLII. The WASLR is a generalist publication, accepting submissions on any issue of law. It is comprised of articles, case notes, and commentary. We accept shorter articles (3,000-5,000 words) to accommodate submission of reworked assessment pieces submitted for undergraduate units.
The first volume of the WASLR was published in July 2017 with a foreword by the Honourable Chief Justice Martin AC. New volumes will be published annually at the end of each academic year.
