The Canadian Journal of Family Law

The Canadian Journal of Family Law is published at the Allard School of Law at UBC. It is a refereed publication issued semi-annually. Submissions made to the Journal are reviewed by qualified external readers, and the format includes articles, commentaries, and book reviews. In the past, the Journal's subject matter has included writings on topics such as child welfare, evidentiary issues, child abuse, young offenders, and other topics impacting on the family unit.

The Journal was started in 1978 and was published under the auspices of the Osgoode Hall Law School in Ontario. In 1982-83 its publication base was moved to the law school at UBC. It is the only student-run academic journal exclusively dedicated to the study, analysis, and articulation of the increasingly important field of family law.
