The New Zealand Postgraduate Law e-Journal


About us

Learn more about the history, purpose and aims of the New Zealand Postgraduate Law e-Journal.

The New Zealand Postgraduate Law e-Journal (NZPGLeJournal) was established in 2004 and is New Zealand’s first legal publication dedicated to the promotion of the country's postgraduate law research online.

The NZPGLeJournal’s main purpose is to provide postgraduate law students with the opportunity to make their work accessible to a wider audience and, at the same time, get acquainted with the procedures involved in the production, submission and publication of academic work. It also hopes, in this way, to foster and enhance the postgraduate legal environment in New Zealand.

Although the publication is based at the Faculty of Law of The University of Auckland, it welcomes and encourages both research papers for publication as well as editorial applications from throughout New Zealand.

Publications may take either the form of main articles (usually between 8000 and 18000 words) or that of shorter updates and commentaries on issues relevant to the law.

The NZPGLeJournal seeks to be the pre-eminent postgraduate law journal in New Zealand and the South Pacific and is therefore committed to excellence in all areas. As such, the NZPGLeJournal will only publish contributions of the highest standard which have been rigorously edited by the Editorial Board.

For more information on the application process for editorial positions, please see Opportunities.
