What is it about?

This article explores the essential and recommended features of a student-oriented model of academic publishing, and provides valuable case studies in the Hong Kong legal academic publishing context by looking at the Hong Kong Journal of Legal Studies and the City University of Hong Kong Law Review. It is argued that student-oriented publishing can thrive in its own right and is complementary, rather than inferior, to publications run by senior academics and practitioners. Student-oriented publishing encourages students to publish as authors and equips student editors with professional and personal skills. Moreover, student-oriented law journals benefit both the professional and the academic communities.

Why is it important?

It provides a student-oriented model of academic publishing for the first time. It also provides two valuable case studies on how student-oriented publishing can be done.


It reflects on my personal experience as an editor and author in student-oriented publications, which has been very inspiring journeys for myself.
