Canadian Journal of Women and the Law issues call for papers

Sunday, October 20, 2013

The Canadian Journal of Women and the Law has issued the following call for papers:

The Canadian Journal of Women and the Law invites the submission of articles for publication in Volume 26(2) in the Fall of 2014. The CJWL is Canada's oldest feminist legal periodical. Since it began in 1985, the Journal has provided a forum in which writers from diverse backgrounds, speaking from a wide range of experience, can exchange ideas and information about legal issues that affect women.
We invite submissions from people who are engaged in feminist analysis of socio-legal issues that reflect a range of approaches, including multidisciplinary, action-focused, theoretical, and historical, and that reflect linguistic and regional differences in Canada. We particularly encourage submissions authored by women from different backgrounds and disciplines who are doing new feminist work.

While submissions are accepted on a rolling basis, the submissions deadline for Volume 26(2) is December 31, 2013. Submissions should conform to the Style Guide available on our website: The text should not exceed 35 pages (10,000 words), double-spaced, including notes and appendices, and should include an abstract.

Please send submissions in a Word document (not PDF) to
