The Court of Conscience is UNSW Law Society’s premier social justice publication. As a multi-award-winning journal, run by a voluntary student editorial board, the publication aims to inspire interest in social justice in the UNSW community and beyond. The publication provides a space for community leaders, lawyers, academics and students to share their experiences, passions and concerns about topical social justice issues.
Submissions are academic, critical and personal in nature and focus on a multiplicity of issues relevant to social justice – all discussed within a legal framework. The publication has an outstanding record of renowned contributors such as Nicholas Cowdery AM QC, Ronald Sackville AO QC, Graeme Innes AM, and George Williams AO, as well as a talented range of student writers. The publication has also featured evocative and thought-provoking editorial pieces by an asylum seeker under the pseudonym Aasiya Amin and Wiradjuri Elder ‘Riverbank’ Frank Doolan.
As of Issue 8, the Court of Conscience is a peer-reviewed publication. Our Peer Review Policy can be found here.
