Welcome to the AWPLN blog. Our intention is to celebrate and disseminate research undertaken by Australian women in the area of private law. If you’re wondering what ‘private law’ encompasses, please see here.
If we have missed any work or news, please contact us (by commenting, by using the “Contact us” mechanism on this post, emailing us at austwomenprivlawnet[at]gmail.com or other social media means) and we will add them to the post. Our intention is to be as inclusive as possible and we want to know about your publications!
