Call for Submissions: Emory Law Journal Issue on Systemic Racism

Special Emory Law Journal Issue on Systemic Racism in the Law & Anti-Racist Solutions


The Emory Law Journal is calling for essay submissions for its forthcoming Special Issue: Systemic Racism in the Law & Anti-Racist Solutions. The Issue will be published in May 2021, with an accompanying remote symposium in March 2021. The special issue is reflective of the Emory Law Journal’s commitment to using its platform to “elevate scholarship that seeks to facilitate racial justice and dismantle white supremacy.” Emory’s Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Law Dorothy A. Brown will be writing the introduction to the Special Issue.

Emory Law Journal is seeking essays from 7,500 to 15,000 words that expose systemic racism in the law or propose anti-racist solutions to make the law more just. Submissions opened Sept. 1, 2020 and will close Oct. 15, 2020. Abstracts will also be accepted as submissions. Final manuscripts are due Dec. 15, 2020. For more information, please see the Call for Papers below.
