The City University of New York Law Review, a publication committed to promoting social justice scholarship, is seeking submissions for our Spring 2010 volume. Our journal is affiliated with the City University of New York School of Law, one of the most diverse law schools in the nation and one of the few entirely dedicated to producing public interest lawyers. In addition to publishing articles by legal scholars, we have a special section in each journal dedicated to public interest articles written by practitioners.

If you are currently working on an article related to the social justice mission of our Journal, please do not hesitate to send us an inquiry. Our Board is interested in articles related to many different social justice visions and movements, and enjoys articles that integrate theory and practice. To submit an article for publication, please email our Articles Editors. We would be happy to respond to any questions you may have about the City University of New York Law Review and our spring publication.
