Critical feminist research on law and justice

The Australian Feminist Law Journal was created to focus on research that uses critical feminist approaches to law and justice. We publish research informed by critical theory, cultural and literary theory, jurisprudential, postcolonial and psychoanalytic approaches, among other critical research practices.

We publish two issues each year through Taylor & Francis, who handles subscriptions and online access.

Special Issue - Volume 45 is out now

Law's Changing Bodies: Contemporary and Historical Perspectives on Law and Embodiment

Edited by Dr Laura Griffin and Ms Linda Roland Danil

Feminist scholars and theorists have long engaged with the body and questioned its relation to law. This special issue continues this legacy, while also drawing on and contributing to more recent scholarly interest in embodiment, gender and law.
