The New Zealand Business Law Quarterly (NZBLQ) is New Zealand's leading business law journal. It is a joint venture between the New Zealand Centre for Law and Business at the University of Auckland and Thomson Reuters NZ. The NZBLQ aims to provide in-depth, but accessible, analyses of business law issues for both a national and international legal audience. It is a fully refereed journal, with material submitted by academics, from New Zealand and abroad, and by practising lawyers. The editors welcome submissions from all jurisdictions where the subject matter falls within the broad parameters of the journal.

The current editor of the NZBLQ is Associate Professor Chris Nicoll.  He is supported by an editorial board of ten law professors from universities in New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States along with a Supreme Court judge. Each issue usually contains several substantial articles, and a “Notes and Comment” section with briefer treatment of recent cases or issues.

The editors welcome submissions of the following length:

  • Articles: these should be between 10,000 and 12,000 words including footnotes.
  • Shorter articles: these should be between 4,000 and 6,000 words including footnotes.
  • Case notes: these should be no longer than 1,500 words, excluding footnotes.   

The house-style of the journal is the latest edition of the New Zealand Law Style Guide:
