Journal History

Starting with volume 1, 1994, Deakin Law Review was published

The DLR Editors also considered accessibility to the legal and wider community as important, so to that end issues  from 2004 were published on this website and in on-line databases such as EBSCO, AustLII and HeinOnline.
