The UNSW Law Journal is a refereed publication, committed to publishing articles that are relevant not only to academics, but also to legal and business professionals. It is widely cited in academic texts, other scholarly journals, Hansard, parliamentary committees, government reports and in the news media. It is also regularly cited in court judgments, including from the High Court of Australia.

The UNSW Law Journal has a diverse and influential readership. It is distributed among Justices of the High Court of Australia, Federal Court of Australia and Supreme Court of NSW. Subscribers also include government departments, non-government organisations, law firms and universities worldwide. In addition, the Journal is accessed through leading online legal services HeinOnline, AustLII, WilsonWeb and Informit e-Library.
