The Windsor Yearbook of Access to Justice (WYAJ) is committed to advancing critical scholarship and research in the broad areas of access to justice and social justice. Created in 1979, the Windsor Yearbook of Access to Justice is the foremost Canadian journal devoted to the study of access to justice, broadly conceived.

The Yearbook is independently refereed, publishes French and English essays and book reviews, is faculty-run and is supported by a distinguished Advisory Board. The Editors invite manuscripts that critically analyze the procedural, corrective or distributive justice of particular institutions, the substantive content of legal concepts, the social-cultural practices of lawyers/judges/scholars and the impact of law. The Yearbook encourages a wide diversity of essays from a broad range of disciplines, including anthropology, sociology, philosophy, psychology, history and comparative literature as well as law.

The Yearbook is available for free on multiple platforms, including Erudit, the Directory of Open Access Journals and University of Windsor's Open Journal System ( and Canadian Legal Information Institute (CanLII). All articles have Digital Object Identifiers [DOI], and the journal is indexed widely.
