Indigenous Law JournalDescription

The Indigenous Law Journal is a student-run legal journal and the first and only Canadian legal journal to exclusively publish articles regarding Indigenous legal issues. Launched in 2002, the journal is dedicated to developing dialogue and scholarship in the field of Indigenous legal issues both in Canada and internationally.

The journal publishes articles, notes, case comments, and reviews grounded in all areas of study pertaining to both the laws of indigenous peoples and the law as it affects indigenous peoples. Students, faculty, practitioners, and members of the judiciary are invited to submit papers. Submissions from all perspectives are encouraged as the Journal presents a non-partisan forum for discussion.

The Indigenous Law Journal is now available exclusively online (though we may arrange for a limited print run in the future). Please access Volume 12-13 of ILJ at Miigwetch/Marsee/Thank you to the editorial board, authors, and support persons who contributed to this issue.

Submissions & Subscriptions

The Indigenous Law Journal encourages submissions from indigenous perspectives in addition to submissions regarding or from within indigenous legal systems. If you have any submission related questions please email our submissions manager at

Student Involvement

As a student run journal, there are many ways for students to get involved. Students in any year of law school who have an interest in Aboriginal, Constitutional, Human Rights and/or International comparative law, are encouraged to apply to be associate editors with the journal. No specific experience is required for this rewarding hands on position. As a young innovative journal there is also a lot of room for more in-depth involvement of upper year students at the senior editor level.

Co-Editors-in-Chief: Sabah Khokhar and Jasman Gill
Senior Editorial Board: To be confirmed
