Australian Journal of Labour Law

The Australian Journal of Labour Law is designed to be of service both to the academic community and to practitioners in labour relations law and labour relations.

The Journal seeks to publish articles, notes and comments, and detailed commentaries on recent cases and legislation in the field of labour law. Articles may deal with an area of labour law in an analytical, theoretical or empirical fashion. Contributions detailing or analysing the importance of recent developments in labour law or dealing with issues of policy and reform are also welcomed.

The Journal is controlled by an Editorial Committee following a formal process of peer review.

Although the primary focus of the Journal is on Australian labour law, articles and contributions on overseas developments will be accepted for publication where they are of relevance to the Australian situation.

The Australian Journal of Labour Law publishes in partnership with the Centre for Employment and Labour Relations Law at Melbourne Law School.
