The Windsor Review of Legal and Social Issues publishes work that aims to advance social change through the study of law.

The Review is an entirely student-run and peer-reviewed interdisciplinary law journal. 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. Our goal is 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.

We invite you to submit original articles, book reviews, and comments on recent cases or legislation. Submissions should conform to the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation (8th edition).
