The Griffith Law Review was launched in 1992 - the same year its host facility, Griffith Law School began its undergraduate teaching program.
We initially published as a compact A5 format, with a cover design featuring a line drawing of Sir Samuel Walker Griffith, former Queensland Premier, Chief Justice of Australia and the source of the University's name.
In 1996, we expanded in size and modernised in design to reflect the aims and spirit of a young law school providing a critical legal education. We further modernised in 2003 to better reflect the current themes of the Griffith Law School and the University.
At the beginning of 2014 the Griffith Law School entered into a partnership with Taylor & Francis for the publishing of the Review going forward and moved to publishing four issues per year.
