The Australian Law Reform Commission published the first issue of Reform in January 1976, and then twice a year until 2010. The journal's aim was to raise public awareness of contemporary legal issues and provides a forum for high-quality debate on issues of law reform in an easy-to-read format.
Articles contributed by leading Australian and overseas experts provided a valuable opportunity for independent analysis of a variety of legal issues and processes. Reform also provided the latest news on local and international law reform projects in its regular feature 'Reform Roundup'.
The final edition was published in December 2009.
Most articles from past issues of Reform since 1995 are available online via the AustLII website.
