The Hong Kong Journal of Legal Studies is Hong Kong’s only law journal that is fully written, edited and managed by students. Generously supported by the Faculty, the Hong Kong Journal of Legal Studies (previously known as the Hong Kong Student Law Review) was started in 1994. The Journal has been founded with the aim to provide a forum for law students to discuss, exchange, and publish researched legal opinions on legal issues. Stepping into its 10th publication, the Hong Kong Journal of Legal Studies continues to provide fertile grounds for aspiring law academics to express their views on the cutting edge of law.
A vast number of topics have been covered in the Hong Kong Journal of Legal Studies throughout the years. Hong Kong’s constitutional and administrative legal issues are regularly featured in the Journal, as are reforms in Hong Kong’s criminal and family law. Recent editions of the Hong Kong Journal of Legal Studies have included discussions on cross-border legal issues and global legal development of intellectual property law.
The Hong Kong Journal of Legal Studies has an established exchange partnership with a number of law journals and law schools overseas. Locally, the Journal is warmly received by the legal profession, local universities, libraries and the general public.
The Editors hope that the Journal will continue to be an avenue for local law students to flex their intellectual muscles and to continue its mission in encouraging students to think and write critically.
