About the USQ Law Society Law Review

Tory Webb joined the USQ Law Society in Semester One of 2018 and initially proposed the idea of a student run peer-reviewed journal to the then Competitions Director Katie Lush. Over the following weeks he put together a stakeholder opportunity presentation alongside a project charter to present to the USQ Law Society executive in an executive meeting where they voted the affirmative for.

For the remainder of 2018 Tory created a project management report encompassing the entire Law Review and how it would benefit not only the members but also all la students as a whole. Tory was elected by the member body into the then role of USQLS Law Review Director role, for the duration of the initial term and that of his subsequent term in that position again in 2020 where he sought to build a foundation for the journal for students to build upon after he had launched the project.

At the end of 2020 the USQLS Law review reached its first major milestone with the Soft Launch, giving the opportunity to test the initial foundation, systems and structures that were implemented to enable to publication to succeed. The soft launch saw interest from members of the AAT and academics from other law schools throughout Queensland. With a successful soft launch, the final phase of project management was entered into, with the initial goal being that of creating a consistent portal for submission of articles from students, academics and legal professionals alike. On 28 May 2021, the USQLS Law Review attained an ISSN and the initial soft launch was lodged with the national edatabase to begin the foundation for future years.

The USQ Law Society is indebted to Tory’s initiative and work in establishing and publishing the USQ Law Society Law Review which is set to provide opportunities for students and the law society in the years to come.
