CFP: Berkeley J. of Gender, Law & Justice Seeks “Commentary” Contributions

Post to Twitter

From the Commentary Editor of the student-run Berkeley Journal of Gender, Law & Justice

The Berkeley Journal of Gender, Law & Justice is currently accepting submissions for a piece to be published in the Commentary section of our upcoming issue.   We are hoping to publish a 5-10 page piece, but are flexible with regard to length.   In addition to law journal articles and notes, Commentary welcomes submissions that incorporate narrative and other non-traditional methods of legal writing.

Here is the journal’s mandate:

Our mandate is to publish research, analysis, narrative, theory, and commentary that address the lives and struggles of underrepresented women.   We believe that excellence in feminist legal scholarship requires critical examination of the intersection of gender with one or more other axes of subordination including, but not limited to, race, class, sexual orientation, and disability.   Therefore, discussions of ‘women’s issues’ that treat women as a monolithic group do not fall within our mandate.   Because conditions of inequality are continually changing our mandate is continually evolving.

Please forward all submissions to  bglj.commentary@gmail.com.   The deadline is January 16, 2010.
