UPDATE: We are still accepting manuscripts for our themed publication, but we will consider all manuscripts regardless of whether they fit into our theme. If we extend an offer for publication, we will inform the author of which volume we believe the piece would be best suited for (i.e. either the themed Spring volume or the regular Winter volume).The MJR&L will transition boards at the end of the February, and authors are free to submit their pieces at this time. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
In response to the 2016 United States presidential election and its potential impact on marginalized communities, the Michigan Journal of Race and Law will publish a themed volume. This volume is dedicated to legal scholarship that analyzes the democratic process, identity politics, and particular laws that influenced the national discourse during the presidential campaign. Additionally, the Journal seeks scholarship and individual reflections that analyze the anticipated legal and social implications of a Trump administration.
Please provide a brief statement of interest, in less than 200 words, that discusses the topic you wish to submit for publication by Sunday, December 4, 2016, by 11:59 p.m. Please submit your statement of interest here.
