The National Black Law Journal has been committed to scholarly discourse exploring the intersection of race and the law for more than three decades. We continue to build on this tradition by publishing articles that address the social features, policy implications, and political dimensions of legal issues surrounding race and minority group status. The Journal provides a forum for scholars, students, practitioners, and activists interested in the interconnections between race and law, and supports those works that are both critical of and marginalized within mainstream legal discourse. Although we seek to publish articles that represent broad and varied perspectives, we are also concerned that these articles inspire original thought, explore new alternatives, and contribute to current jurisprudential stances.
Journal staff is selected from applications received after the first year. Applications from transfer students are accepted and reviewed at the beginning of the second year. Members of the editorial board are chosen from current staff members.
The credit policy of the NBLJ is dictated by the Rules of the J.D. Degree. Second-year staff members may receive one or two writing credits. In addition to a second writing credit, an academic credit will be awarded for a published Note.
