Past Issues & Open Access

As of March 2023, the UBC Law Review officially transitioned to become an open access journal. This decision was in line with our long-standing commitment to access to justice, and specifically, access to information.

 

While we continue to offer in print publications and are available on paid legal prescription services such as Westlaw and Lexis+, our previous Issues dating back to volume 44 are available to all for free. All future Issues will also be published on open access platforms. 

Our full catalogue of available back issues are available on CanLII and the Allard Research Commons. If you require access to an article that predates volume 44, please email eic@ubclawreview.ca and we will try our best to retrieve a digital copy of the article.
