Property Law Review is a new peer-reviewed journal exploring important questions of real and personal property with national or international implications.
Launching in February 2011, this high calibre journal publishes articles, notes, comments and reviews dealing with fundamental questions in property law, other than in relation to intellectual property. It welcomes multiple perspectives, ranging across analytical, theoretical, empirical and comparative approaches, analysis of recent developments, exploration of issues of policy and proposals for law reform.
The three General Editors, Professor Brendan Edgeworth, Dr Lyria Bennett Moses and Ms Cathy Sherry, bring complementary fields of expertise to the journal. Together with the Editorial Board of distinguished academics and practitioners from Australia and around the world, they are establishing a publication that is without international equivalent.
The quality of contributions, all subject to double-blind review, is demonstrated by the contents of the first part of the journal, a notable inclusion of which is an article on property law and mortgage crisis by Professor Joseph Singer of Harvard Law School. Professor Singer is a leading property scholar and theorist in the common law world.
Property Law Review offers a unique combination of intellectual rigour and commercial relevance to academics researching and teaching the law of property in its many and varied manifestations. It is also of value to commercial litigators and advisors involved in large-scale commercial transactions that can be caught up in litigation arising from the complexity of property law.
Online, Property Law Review features access to the growing backset from Volume 1, 2011, with links to judgments, legislation and other online publications, while allowing for individual articles to be downloaded in PDF format or received via RSS feed.
Approximately three parts publish each year, comprising one volume of the journal.
