From the FLP Mailbox, this announcement of a new student-edited law journal at the University of Tennessee College of Law:
The Editorial Board of The Tennessee Journal of Race, Gender, and Social Justice (“RGSJ”) invites you to submit an article for consideration in our inaugural Volume I publication. RGSJ is a legal journal designed to utilize legal analysis and interdisciplinary research to discover new conclusions that aim to ameliorate the racial, gender, and social injustices plaguing today’s society. The goal of RGSJ is to provide an interdisciplinary forum that allows individuals to discuss these topics in depth, so people will be thoroughly educated by various works in its publication. As a result, RGSJ will play a key role in framing the debate on race, gender, and social justice issues by raising awareness, offering intelligent analyses, and propositioning solutions.
Written works that will be considered for publication are case studies, case comments, narrative submissions, and articles.
In the 2011-2012 academic year, RGSJ will publish one issue. Articles for the issue will be considered throughout the fall and into the early spring on a rolling basis. To be considered for the first issue, required materials MUST be submitted no later than 11:59 PM EST on November 4th, 2011.
Additional deadlines and information about the RGSJ symposium will also be forthcoming on our website.
Submission requirements are as follows:
All works must contain a legal and interdisciplinary analysis that is related to race, gender, or social justice. We will particularly welcome topics that include discussions on health care, immigration, administrative law, drugs, trafficking in persons, neighborhood crime, disaster recovery, bankruptcy, housing, education, and any other topics addressing racial, gender or social justice issues.
All works must be typed, triple-spaced, one-inch margins, and 12-point Times New Roman font. Any articles submitted must be at least 15 pages in length.
Please conform to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation, published by the Harvard Law Review Association. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about this citation or style system.
All submissions must obtain a cover letter that includes the author’s name, school or affiliation, address, telephone number, email address, and the title of the written work.
