The University of Hawai`i Asian-Pacific Law & Policy Journal (APLPJ) welcomes original, unpublished papers from graduate and law students, academic experts, and practitioners for its next issue. The APLPJ also welcomes translations of articles or recently enacted or promulgated laws.
The APLPJ was founded in 1999 as the first fully functional web-based legal journal to provide a worldwide forum for the presentation and discussion of legal, policy-based, and socio-economic issues that arise in or impact the geographic regions of East Asia and Polynesia, as well as the individual nations of those regions, and Australia. The APLPJ exploits the web format to accomplish its primary goals: disseminate research and information regarding issues of importance to the APLPJ's geographic scope; promote discussion and awareness of those issues; and provide students at the William S. Richardson School of Law an outlet for their scholastic interests and talents.
To achieve its goals, the APLPJ provides Articles authored by legal scholars, economists, social scientists, and other professionals, as well as Practitioner Notes (concisely written recent legal developments intended for practitioners) authored by legal professionals. Further, third-year law students research and write Comments, while second-year law students research and write Case Notes or Recent Developments. Additionally, translators, writers, and students prepare Translations of Articles or of recently enacted laws or promulgated rules and regulations. With the breadth of knowledge and breadth of expertise that Articles, Practitioner Notes, Comments, Case Notes, Recent Developments, and Translations represent, APLPJ provides an effective forum to promote awareness, discussion, and research of legal, policy-related, and socio-economic topics that affect the Asian-Pacific region.
Scope: Articles and commentaries should address new legal developments from or affecting Asia, Australia, or Polynesia. The Journal also welcomes relevant articles or commentaries that evoke discussion. Translations should be of significant cases or recently enacted law or promulgated rules or regulations from the nations in the Asian-Pacific region.
Format : All submissions must be sent as computer files. These files can either be mailed on disk or sent as attachments via e-mail to the address below, but they must be in Microsoft Word (97 or 2000 for Windows) format. Documents must be double-spaced, in 12-point Times New Roman font, and they must be written in English. Margins should be 1 inch (2.5 cm) all around, and paragraphs should be indented 0.5 inch (1.25 cm). All documents longer than 8 printed double-spaced pages must include a Table of Contents. Any footnotes or endnotes should be inserted using Word's "Insert: Footnote" menu command, so that text and notes are fully linked. And, to the extent practicable, APLPJ requests that submissions follow the most recent Bluebook format.
Deadline : Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis. Inclusion into either the APLPJ winter or summer publication will be determined by the Publishability Committee, which will consider, amongst other things, the timeliness of the subject matter.
