Legalities: Journal of Law and Society Association of Australia and New Zealand

An international journal with a strong regional base, Legalities publishes contextually sensitive, theoretically informed, critically engaged and interdisciplinary socio-legal scholarship. It was founded in 2020 and there is currently a call for papers for the first volume.

The first volume is scheduled for publication in March 2021 and is thematised from the 2019 LSAANZ and LLHAA Conferences: ‘Law in End Times’ and ‘JurisApocalyse Now!’ and the crisis that has emerged with the Covid pandemic. If you have an interest in publishing in this edition of Legalities, please submit your abstract (maximum 500 words) to by 25 October 2020 or your full article (maximum 10,000 incl. footnotes) or shorter piece (maximum 2000 words incl. footnotes) by 1 December 2020. Successful submissions will be notified by the editors shortly thereafter, with further details about submission timelines to be advised at that time.
