The Elder Law Review is an independent refereed e-journal produced by Western Sydney University. The Review is multi-disciplinary, bringing together professionals working, researching and writing in the aged care area. It is designed to be of interest to academics, practitioners and those involved in the provision of aged care.
We received word via Nina Kohn at Syracuse Law and Guest Editor Margaret Hall of Thompson Rivers University in Canada about plans for a special volume of the Elder Law Review on the theme of "Relational Autonomy, Vulnerability Theory, Older Adults and the Law: Making It Real." Publication is planned for mid 2019.
The topic was developed at a March 2018 workshop held at Macquarie University in Australia.
Original, unpublished contributions are invited for any of the following sections of the Review:
- the Refereed section containing scholarly articles exploring different aspects of relational autonomy and vulnerability theory in relation to older adults and the law. While we will consider articles of any length, we prefer them to be between 3000 and 8000 words.
- the Comments section, which consists of contributions from government, lawyers and aged care representatives, commenting on issues which the contributor perceives to be of contemporary significance within elder law.
- News and Current Issues – including legislative changes and case notes.
- Elder Law in Practice which profiles legal practices, community projects, social justice initiatives and pro-bono schemes from all over the world that specifically target the legal needs of older people.
Submissions are due by March 1, 2019. For more information, see Call for Submissions, here.
