The Court of Conscience is UNSW Law Society’s annual publication that provides a platform for law students, academics and legal practitioners to express their views on contemporary social justice issues. This is a particularly exciting year as the Court of Conscience is celebrating its 10th anniversary!

The Court of Conscience is currently welcoming submissions for its 2016 Issue, which will have a thematic component entitled ‘Giving Voice to the Minority’. The Editorial Team will be accepting general submissions on any topic relevant to the publication’s mission as well as submissions addressing this year’s thematic focus, which seeks to ignite a dialogue based around the rights of minorities and Indigenous people in Australia and across the world. Broad interpretations of the theme are also encouraged.

The deadline for submissions is 10 July 2016. Submissions are to be approximately 2,000 words in length (excluding footnotes). Shorter comment-style pieces and reflective pieces are also welcome. A selection of past Issues is available at http://www.unswlawsoc.org/court-of-conscience/.

The style guide is the third edition of the Australian Guide to Legal Citation, available at http://law.unimelb.edu.au/mulr/aglc/about. All submissions are subject to a blind peer review, and the final decision as to acceptance remains at the discretion of the Editorial Team. Please feel free to send through an abstract to determine initial suitability for publication.

If you are interested and/or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Editorial Team at courtofconscience@unswlawsoc.org.
