The Thurgood Marshall School of Law Gender, Race, and Justice Law Journal is a student-run organization whose primary purpose is to publish a journal of legal scholarship. The Journal is published bi-annually in the Spring. Student editors make all editorial and organizational decisions and, together with faculty advisors, carry out day-to-day operations.
Aside from serving as an important academic forum for legal scholarship, the Journal has two other goals. First, it is designed to be an effective research tool for practicing lawyers and students of the law. Second, it provides opportunities for Journal members to develop their own editing and writing skills. Accordingly, each issue contains pieces by student editors as well as outside authors.
The Journal is a source of open discussion for both traditional and modern thorough legal commentary and analysis. While the foundation of its forum is settled in feminist and racial perception under legal confines, the Journal shall be open to all issues that correspond to the multitude of labels applied to individuals that classifies and stratifies them under the law including but not limited to racial, gender, socio-economic, and sexual identity. The Journal shall seek to advance its campus, community, and society towards a vision, where “justice” is indisputably an act of fairness and equity, by becoming a respectful and meaningful medium of expression that addresses struggles against oppression. It is the mission of the Journal to be the spark that ignites the passionate flame of positive change within the hearts of those within the realm of our legal system.
