Journal of Law and Financial Management

Joint Editors: Tyrone Carlin and Guy Ford
ISSN: 1446-6899

The Journal of Law and Financial Management is a scholarly peer-reviewed journal published by the University of Sydney Business School. The purpose of the journal is to provide a forum for the publication of research and analysis focused on the nexus of the general disciplinary areas of law (primarily business and commercial law) and financial management. Potential contributors should note that the term "financial management" as used in the title of the journal, is used broadly rather than narrowly, and encompasses all aspects of accounting and financial reporting, finance and financial economics.

Contributions of theoretical, empirical, analytical and critical manuscripts are encouraged, though descriptive manuscripts will be considered where they illuminate new, unusual or controversial practices of interest to the readership base. Since the journal is intended to
serve as a forum for debate as well as for exploration, reviews of and replies to previously
published manuscripts are also welcome.
