The Windsor Review of Legal and Social Issues (WRLSI) is one of the few multi-disciplinary legal academic student-run journals in Canada.
First published in 1989, the WRLSI was initially published annually. However, due to the increase in submissions received and recognition of our journal, the WRLSI now publishes two volumes each year containing essays from academics, the judiciary, practitioners, law students, and university students both at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
As an inter-disciplinary law journal, the WRLSI strives to use the study of law as a vehicle for social change. Our journal endeavours to be a resource for professionals, students and academics.
The theme of "Access to Justice" maintained by the Faculty of Law at the University of Windsor has influenced our mandate to publish papers that explore law in its social context, and the impact that social issues can have on the law. Domestic and international concerns relevant to Canadian society also play a key focus in articles selected for publication.
Legal libraries both nationally and globally subscribe to the WRLSI. Our legal journal has also been made available through electronic databases such as Quicklaw/LexisNexis, Westlaw, and Hein Online.
