The NZLJ is seeking articles that relate to any domestic or international topic concerning women, gender, perspectives and the law. They encourage articles that take an intersectional approach and simultaneously examine issues of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status and sexual orientation. The Journal is peer-reviewed and thus subject to rigorous standards of academic publication.
