The Dalhousie Journal of Legal Studies is a non-profit, academic journal that publishes work from current law students and recent alumni in Canada and throughout the world
Established in 1991, the Dalhousie Journal of Legal Studies is a forum that promotes reflection and debate about contemporary legal issues. As one of the only publications of its kind in Canada, the Journal serves as a unique vehicle for law students to publish their work.
The DJLS is published once per academic year and maintains a broad subscription base that includes law firms, law school libraries, corporations, government departments, alumni, and legal professionals from around the globe. The Journal is also indexed in the HeinOnline database.
An entirely student-run publication, the DJLS is managed by an editorial board, and over seventy volunteers comprising students from the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie assist in production and publication.Close
On March 15, 2013 the Dalhousie Journal of Legal Studies held its first annual Student Legal Research Conference (aptly called the "Think Tank"). Congratulations to Hunter Parsons, whose presentation, titled Picking Winners in the Market for Corporate Control: Poison Pill Regulation in 21st Century Canada, received the top prize of $250 and a publication opportunity with the DJLS. The DJLS would like to thank all those who participated!
