CALL FOR ARTICLES
DEADLINE OF NOVEMBER 14, 1998 FOR VOLUME 12 (APRIL 1999)
The Editorial Board of the Australian Feminist Law Journal invites submissions of article length manuscripts on broadly conceived issues of legality and justice,(8,000 words approx). The deadline for Articles for the next volume is November 14, 1998, earlier submissions are welcome.
The Journal is concerned with critical and historical approaches to the practise of law and seeks to publish articles in which current practices of legality and justice are framed by the contemporary methodological boundaries of the law discipline. Approaches to contemporary
methodological boundaries in the law discipline are sought from within feminist jurisprudence, critical legal studies, postmodern jurisprudence, postcolonial theory, psychoanalytic jurisprudence, law and literature studies, legal historiography, feminist and critical philosophy,
semiotics of law, and women's studies. The Journal is concerned to maintain a focus
upon how the substantive, theoretical and methodological maintenance of the boundaries of the law discipline both constains and enables a better understanding of the nature of legal doctrine, legal practice and the social characteristics and capacities of legal subjects.
Praxis Notes are also sought on any issues of legal practice (3 -4000 words). In recent issues of the Journal Notes have been published on: abortion litigation at the Australian High Court, submissions on Sexual Assault Law Reform to the Model Criminal Code Officers Committee, the effects of cuts to Legal Aid funding, family law litigation.
A Style Guide is available on request from the Editorial Board.
Manuscripts may be sent by mail to the Editorial Board, AFLJ, PO Box 4337, M.U. Parkville, Victoria, 3052, Australia. Or by email to Judith Grbich, on J.Grbich@latrobe.edu.au. Any enquiries about the Journal or propective writing topics for articles or praxis notes may be directed to Judith Grbich.
