First published in 1993, Taumauri - the Waikato Law Review provides authoritative and critical analysis on a broad range of legal issues. The journal is hosted by Te Piringa Faculty of Law at the University of Waikato and reflects the Faculty’s founding objectives of biculturalism, the study of law in context, and professionalism.
Special emphasis is placed on contemporary developments in all branches of law, reflecting the Faculty’s commitment to teaching law in context. The articles published in the Waikato Law Review are designed to have the widest appeal to those interested in the law - whether as practitioners, students, teachers, judges or policy makers - and to provide an opportunity for them to keep abreast of contemporary new ideas and the progress of legal reform.
In addition to publishing articles in all branches of the law, the Waikato Law Review contains sections devoted to recent legislation and reports, case analysis, and book reviews.
The Waikato Law Review is widely acclaimed as a leading platform for scholarly legal debate in New Zealand and throughout Commonwealth and other common law jurisdictions.
Annual subscriptions for the Waikato Law Review are NZ$40 per copy within New Zealand, and NZ$45 international. Subscription prices are inclusive of any GST and postage.
