Journal History

The first publication of the International Journal of Rural Law and Policy was launched in November 2011. The articles in that first issue resulted from a colloquim on water law held at the University of New England in January 2011. Since that time, the journal has published several special issues concerned with REDD+ and mangroves, soil governance, mining law and policy, and rural regional legal issues. The journal has also published a diverse range of articles, from the application of family violence law in rural Australia papers to policies on seed banks.
