Federal Law Review

Published since 1964 by the ANU College of Law, the Federal Law Review ('FLR') is recognised as one of Australia’s leading academic law journals. The FLR publishes four issues per year, with a themed final issue.The FLR specialises in matters of federal law. These include the analysis of legal and policy questions relating to the nature of federalism, both in Australia and elsewhere. With regard to Australia, our definition of federal law includes:

  • Commonwealth constitutional and administrative law
  • Matters within Commonwealth legislative competence (whether or not these matters fall within public or private law)
  • Decisions of courts exercising federal jurisdiction
  • International and comparative law in so far as it affects the Commonwealth
  • Matters of law which have given rise, or might give rise, to national or uniform legislation

The FLR is supported by revenue from subscriptions and institutional support from the ANU College of Law. It does not accept advertising.

The FLR is delighted to announce it has agreed to partner with the international publisher SAGE, beginning with volume 47 (2019). The new arrangement will enhance distribution of the FLR internationally and, we expect, extend its already significant readership and reputation. For questions about the SAGE-FLR agreement, please contact the journal ( or its General Editor Associate Professor Ron Levy (
