The Osgoode Hall Review of Law and Policy began as a student initiative in 2006-2007 and as the first legal publication dedicated to exploring the intersection of law and policy at Osgoode.
In 2012 the Review undertook numerous reforms. At the center of these reforms was a focus on three key principles: timeliness, quality, and transparency. To this end, the Review published new submission guidelines, introduced a new logo and website, and developed a new organizational model.
Further, the Review created an advisory committee. The committee was formed of Osgoode faculty members, past Editors-in-Chief, and other individuals with knowledge of legal publication. The objective of the committee was to provide advice on the strategic direction of the journal, support to the current Editor-in-Chief, and ensure continuity as the editorial board transitions from one year to the next.
The journal published its last issue in the spring of 2013 before ceasing its operations.
