Deakin Briefs is a student-led project that aims to supply students, academics, practitioners, and the wider Australian legal community with research and analysis on a range of contemporary legal topics in an accessible format. We seek to fill the gap in the research by providing short and digestible information to complement the fast-paced life of those within the legal industry.

As a generalist law blog, we aim to provide thoughtful legal commentary on a wide range of legal issues. We aim to publish discourse on a range of legal topics including criminal law, contract law, torts, international law, commercial law, arbitration, human rights law, refugee law, immigration law, impactful court decisions and more. While our articles are short, they are still peer-reviewed with the singular goal of promoting debate and discussion among curious and creative thinkers about Australian legal issues that have a real-world impact, clarify legal issues, and revolutionise our approach to matters.

To deliver content promptly, the editorial process is truncated to deliver the highest quality legal discourse. Our articles are reviewed by our editors who fact-check and peer-review all articles before publication. Deakin Briefs and its student-led editorial team are committed to transparency and honesty. Please note that the views of our authors may not reflect the views of Deakin Briefs. Please note that the content on this website does not constitute legal advice.

We thank the authors and staff at Deakin University, our partners and student members of the editorial team for their support and encouragement. Without them, this project would not have been possible.
