Canadian Journal of Family Law Home

The Canadian Journal of Family Law/Revue canadienne de droit familial is a biannual interdisciplinary journal that publishes English and French academic articles on a broad range of family law issues. It is a refereed publication, with articles reviewed by an Advisory Board of legal professionals and academics.

The Journal is the first family law journal in Canada. The first volume was published in 1978 at Osgoode Hall. In 1982, the Journal moved to the University of British Columbia (UBC). For more information about the history of the Journal, click here.

The Journal encourages student involvement. It is produced by an Editorial Staff that includes Allard School of Law students. Law students are also invited to submit papers to the annual Allan Falconer Memorial Student Essay Competition.
