Welcome from all four directions.
The Indigenous Law Journal is dedicated to developing dialogue and scholarship in the field of Indigenous legal issues both in Canada and internationally. We encourage submissions from all perspectives. Our central concerns are Indigenous legal systems and legal systems as they affect Indigenous peoples.
We are governed by core values that include recognition:
- that Indigenous legal systems are best learned from the context and perspectives of Indigenous peoples;
- that to ensure balance and cultural authenticity, both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal participation is required in all of the journal's editorial and business decisions; and
- that the pursuit of excellence in scholarship is rooted in both an understanding of the past, and a commitment to innovation.
We are a primary source of original, top-quality articles, notes, case comments, and reviews. Our call for submissions goes to hundreds of law schools worldwide.
The Indigenous Law Journal is a student-run legal journal at the University of Toronto, Faculty of Law with a mixture of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal staff. We are the first and only Canadian legal journal to exclusively publish articles regarding Indigenous legal issues.
Current subscribers to the Indigenous Law Journal include university libraries, courts and tribunals, law firms, Indigenous peoples' organizations and individuals – not only in Canada but in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere around the world.
