Joining the Review

The Review strongly encourages law students of all year levels at Monash University to contribute to the publication of our journal. Student Editors and Committee Members of the Monash University Law Review have the opportunity to develop editing and legal writing skills, improve research and reviewing capabilities and gain valuable experience working on a well-recognised academic publication. Many leading members of the legal profession and academia are past members of the Review's editorial team.
