International Trade and Business Law Review – Call for Submission

International Trade and Business Law Review Volume XXIII

Call for Submissions

The International Trade and Business Law Review (‘ITBLR’) invites submissions from legal scholars and researchers, legal practitioners, justice professionals, and policy officials for publication in Volume XXIII of the ITBLR in 2021. The ITBLR also encourages high quality submissions from law students.

Founded in 1995, the ITBLR is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles, case notes, comments, and book reviews on international trade, business law, investment, commercial arbitration, and governance and regulation. The ITBLR provides a platform for rigorous and thought provoking scholarly and critical debates on emerging issues and developments in international trade and business. Submissions utilising comparative analyses incorporating international perspectives are particularly welcomed. Submissions that focus on topics outside of the above themes will be considered if they are sufficiently connected to the ITBLR’s primary topics of focus.

The world is facing a crisis of growing regionalism and nationalism, underpinned by rising geopolitical tension and a growing sense of uncertainty as a result of a global pandemic. The ITBLR contributes to the theoretical and empirical scholarly discussion of these developments; explores evolving global perspectives; and provides practical insights and in-depth analysis that can assist legal scholars, legal professionals, policy makers and other members of the legal and business communities.

Articles should not exceed 10,000 words in length and should include an abstract of approximately 200 words. Case notes, comments, and book reviews should not exceed 2,500 words. All footnotes must be consistent with the Australian Guide to Legal Citation 4th edition.

Submissions that are provisionally accepted will undergo a double-blind peer review. Accepted submissions will be edited by a select team of Student Editors at Curtin Law School (‘Student Editorial Board’). The Student Editorial Board is mentored by Editorial Consultants Dr Sharmin Tania and Dr Martin Allcock, and Editorial Assistant Meika Atkins. The ITBLR is overseen by the Editor-in-Chief, Curtin Law School’s Dean of Law, Professor Robert Cunningham.

Please submit articles for this issue via email to the ITBLR’s Editorial Consultants, Dr Sharmin Tania and Dr Martin Allcock at

The ITBLR will accept submissions for Volume XXIII until 31 July 2021, with the expectation of publishing at the end of 2021.
