Southern California Review of Law and Social Justice (RLSJ)
USC Gould School of Law
The Southern California Review of Law and Social Justice (RLSJ) is an honors law journal at the University of Southern California Gould School of Law. RLSJ started in 1992 as the Southern California Review of Law and Women's Rights, but in 2006, starting with the sixteenth volume, the journal expanded its focus and renamed itself to reflect a focus beyond just women's rights to all issues of social justice.
The Southern California Review of Law and Social Justice (RLSJ) promotes the discussion and examination of issues lying at the intersection of social justice and the law. RLSJ publishes legal narratives and analyses of case law and legislation that address the law's interaction with historically underrepresented groups and highlight the law's potential as an instrument of positive social change. These narratives and analyses borrow from the perspectives of a wide range of disciplines. The goal of RLSJ is to influence the development of the law in ways that encourage full and equal participation of all people in politics and society.
RLSJ annually publishes one volume, in three separate issues. This year RLSJ will be hosting a symposium, in conjunction with volume 21, issue 1, on mechanical restraints. See our Symposium page for details.
The Southern California Review of Law and Social Justice invites professors, practitioners and students to submit articles, student notes, essays, legal briefs and book reviews that address issues involving the intersection of social justice and the law. After acceptance, our editors will work with authors to prepare the paper for publication.
Please see our submissions page for details.
The cost of an annual subscription to the Southern California Review of Law and Social Justice is $25. To subscribe or for more information, please email Thomas Callahan, Business Manager or call 213-740-9244.
