Call for Submissions

About Us

We invite you to submit original articles, book reviews, and comments on recent cases or legislation.

The Windsor Review of Legal and Social Issues is an entirely student-run and peer-reviewed interdisciplinary law journal. As a non-traditional law journal, our mandate is to promote an analytical, practical, and empirical approach to the study of law, which incorporates the perspectives of multiple disciplines, in order to utilize the study of law as a vehicle for social justice.  Our journal is a resource for lawyers, students, academics, professionals, adjudicators, and public policy makers. Copies of the journal can be found in libraries worldwide and through electronic databases such as Westlaw, HeinOnline, and Quicklaw/LexisNexis.

Submissions should conform to the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation (8th Edition). Please visit our webpage at http://www.uwindsor.ca/wrlsi/ for further submission guidelines.
