About This Journal
The LSU Law Journal for Social Justice & Policy is a student-edited, academic journal based out of the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The Journal was spearheaded in Fall 2019 by a pair of students who were interested in promoting the discussion of issues relating to social justice and public policy at the LSU Law. The mission of our Journal is to reach current and future members of the legal profession with fresh perspectives on controversial issues relating to social justice and policy and address a gap in the types of matters explored in the context of academic legal writing here at LSU Law. Moreover, the Journal hopes to provide students with an additional forum to express their views concerning this subject and develop their legal writing skills through journal membership. Finally, we are committed to elevating the voices of law students, practitioners, and academics of color in legal scholarship with a particular focus on those located in the South.
