Established in 2010 as the official journal of the Ronald H. Brown Center for Civil Rights and Economic Development at St. John’s Law School – and building on the rich history of our predecessor, the Journal of Legal Commentary – we are committed to publishing high-quality scholarship and hosting innovative symposia on issues of social, racial and economic justice.

As a  student-run publication, we take tremendous pride in the opportunities we offer students to engage with leading scholars, attorneys and professionals in the field on cutting edge topics. Through their involvement with the Journal, students develop valuable research, writing and analytical skills that enhance their classroom learning and facilitate their work in the legal profession.
