Georgetown Journal on Poverty Law and Policy

From Copyright Experiences

The Georgetown Journal on Poverty Law and Policy is the nation's premier law journal on poverty issues. As part of its mission to bring an end to the desperate conditions afflicting so many in this wealthy nation, the Journal publishes articles from distinguished law professors and practitioners in poverty-related fields. In addition, the Journal features student research, works from scholars in poverty-related disciplines, and the "voices" of persons living in poverty. The Journal's unique, comprehensive, and multidisciplinary approach to poverty issues and law represents a groundbreaking approach to scholarly publication. In pursuit of distinctive and seminal scholarship, the Journal adopts focus areas for each of three annual issues. In addition to its literary excellence, the Journal creates real-world interaction of leading scholars and policy makers with our annual symposium issue. Consistent with its mission, the Journal is also actively involved in local community outreach, and works with legal and social service organizations to provide assistance to those in need. Originally published as the Georgetown Journal on Fighting Poverty in 1993, this student-edited publication is found in virtually every academic law library in America, and is accessible electronically on both Westlaw® and LEXIS®-NEXIS® (Lexis coverage beginning Winter 1998). For information on how to subscribe or submit articles for publication, please contact the Journal at (202) 662-9424, or . This year the Journal is partnering with the Poverty and Clinical Sections of the American Association of Law Schools (AALS) to publish a special issue exploring the role of clinical legal education in preparing law students to take their place in response to the justice gap between the rich and the poor. The Journal will hold a symposium on March 18th called "How Can YOU Fight Poverty?: The Intersection of Legal Education and Poverty Law". The Symposium issue of the Journal, Volume 18.3, will feature the articles written by authors who presented their papers at the AALS conference.
