For more information, please see the About the Dalhousie Law Journal page.
The Dalhousie Law Journal accepts submissions form anywhere in the world, in either English or French, from academics, practitioners, judges, and students. Where possible the DLJ prioritizes promising papers by emerging scholars. Submissions on any law-related topics are considered, but the DLJ generally does not publish articles devoted exclusively to the law of foreign countries.
The Dalhousie Law Journal does not have an absolute word length maximum, but only in exceptional cases will we accept articles in excess of 15,000 words. All citations should follow the most recent edition Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation. Please send submissions via email in MS Word format only.
Copyright & Exclusivity
Copyright for all published manuscripts remains with the author. We have an author agreement that is consistent with open access principles and based on Creative Commons BY 4.0 licensing. Articles published on this site are under the same CC BY 4.0 license. The DLJ does not accept papers under consideration by other journals.
People seeking an exception, or who have questions about use, should contact the editors.
The conversation of ideas happens at an increasingly rapid pace. The DLJ will begin early on-line publication of select pieces beginning with issue 43-1 (Spring 2020).
