New journal to explore intersection of legal issues with public and social policy

The Wake Forest University School of Law has approved a new student-edited publication: the Wake Forest Journal of Law and Policy.

The Journal of Law and Policy will issue its first publication in the 2010-11 academic school year.

"The journal is an interdisciplinary publication that explores the intersection of legal issues with public and social policy,” said Melanie Johnson Raubach (’10). “Consistent with Wake Forest’s motto of ‘Pro Humanitate,’ the Journal’s mission is to introduce, maintain and advance discourse so as to uncover policies that will engender equality and the true administration of justice.”

The Journal will publish primarily legal analyses but will also include other scholarly works and social commentary.
