About the Journal

The WCLR is an open source peer reviewed international journal focusing on wrongful convictions and miscarriages of justice. While we are fundamentally a law review, we welcome submissions from other disciplines (e.g. criminology, sociology, psychology etc.). We aim to be the foremost repository of articles, book reviews and case commentaries in our field of endeavour. The Review has a preference for submitted papers to be between 8,000 and 12,000 words. Longer papers will be published where the length is justified. Matters of style and citation are governed by the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation (9th ed.) for submissions of a legal nature; APA (7th ed.) for submissions primarily with psychological content or ASA (8th ed.) for submissions primarily with sociological content.

We will publish high-quality, original, empirical and theoretical research.

The WCLR seeks to foster dialogue and collaberation between scholars, jurists and practitioners.
