The Alternative Law Journal (AltLJ) is a quarterly, refereed law journal published by the Legal Service Bulletin Co-operative Ltd in Melbourne, Australia.

The Alternative Law Journal (AltLJ) is administered by volunteers, is independent of any organisation or political party, and is self funding. The support of the Co-operative is provided by the Law Faculty, Monash University in Melbourne, where the journal is based.

The Alternative Law Journal (AltLJ) was first published in 1974 as the Legal Service Bulletin by the Fitzroy Legal Service in Melbourne, Australia. The Journal grew into a publication serving a much wider readership. The name was changed in 1992 to better reflect its goals and readership.

The goals of the Alternative Law Journal (AltLJ) are:
* promotion of social justice, human rights and law reform issues
* critique of the legal system
* monitoring developments in alternative legal practice
* community legal education.

The Alternative Law Journal is available as an online electronic journal, as well our usual printed journal. Subscriptions are available for either print, print plus online, or online only, for individual subscribers. Single archived articles from the last ten years are also available for purchase.
