New Zealand Business Law Quarterly (NZBLQ)


The New Zealand Business Law Quarterly (NZBLQ) is New Zealand's leading business law journal. It is a joint venture between the Research Centre for Business Law at The University of Auckland and Brookers Ltd (Thomson Reuters). 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 current editors of the NZBLQ are Professor Susan Watson, of the Department of Commercial Law, and Professsor Peter Watts, of the Faculty of Law. They are supported by an editorial board of 14 law professors from universities in New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Each issue usually contains several substantial articles, and a “Notes and Comment” section with briefer treatment of recent cases or issues.

In addition to the editorial board, section editors have been appointed to monitor and advise on the main areas of coverage. The journal thereby aims to keep its readers abreast of current developments.



The following sections are covered by NZBLQ:

  • Agency
  • Banking and Insurance
  • Commercial Contracts

  • Franchising and Licensing
  • Insolvency and Receiverships

  • NZBLQ comprises four issues per hardcopy subscription, supplied quarterly in March, June, September and December – also available online and on CD.
