The Australian Journal of Asian Law is a forum for debate for scholars and professionals concerned with the laws and legal cultures of Asia. It aims for recognition as a leading medium for scholarly and professional discourse in a region characterised by rapid growth and social change. It is a joint initiative of the members of the Asian Law Centre at the University of Melbourne and the Law Faculty of the Australian National University, with support and advice from Australian and international colleagues. The Australian Journal of Asian Law publishes two issues every year.
From edition 13(1) the Australian Journal of Asian Law is freely available in electronic form via our SSRN website. This important change will enhance the quality, availability and accessibility of the journal.
