About the Journal

The Oxford University Commonwealth Law Journal (OUCLJ) is the flagship journal of Oxford University's postgraduate law community, produced under the aegis of the Law Faculty. It is published twice-yearly and endeavours to foster international academic debate and exchange on a wide range of legal topics of interest throughout the Commonwealth. The OUCLJ welcomes contributions from academic lawyers, practitioners and policy-makers, wherever situated. It publishes articles which are concerned with a single jurisdiction as well as those which undertake a comparative analysis, with an emphasis on black letter law rather than legal theory. All pieces are double blind-refereed. The OUCLJ enjoys the support of a strong group of patrons from across the Commonwealth, including Mr Justice Cameron (South Africa), The Right Hon The Lord Goff of Chieveley (UK), The Hon Justice Hayne (Australia), The Right Hon Sir Kenneth Keith (New Zealand), The Hon Justice Manohar (India), The Hon Mr Justice Ribeiro PJ (Hong Kong), The Hon Justice Sharpe JA (Canada), The Hon Chief Justice Smellie (Cayman Islands.
