This journal will serve as a platform for all LSU Law students who are fundamentally committed to discussing social justice and policy through scholarly writing.
We are presently an SBA organization, so you are all welcome to join us. If you are interested, please complete the form and email it back to us at SJPJS@lsu.edu by Wednesday, July 1. You may fill out the form even if you are planning to participate in the write-on competition, as we are currently a non-exclusive organization. We will send out confirmation of membership closer to the fall.
As with the other two journals, Law Review and JELR, student editors will have the opportunity to publish in the journal. Joining our journal will also give you the opportunity to satisfy your upper-level credit requirement!
We will be inviting experts in a particular area to present a paper at a symposium and also be published in the journal. For example, the first issue of SJPJS will focus on SCOTUS jurisprudence about racial injustice. We will host the symposium in the fall and then publish the issue in the spring.
If you have any questions, please direct them to Sophie Birriel-Sanchez and Raven Mouton at SJPJS@lsu.edu.
Here’s wishing you a very safe, healthy, and minimally stressful end of the semester!
