John Marshall Law Journal

The John Marshall Law Journal is a semi-annual, legal periodical published at the conclusion of each fall and spring semester.  Second and third year full-time students and third and fourth year part-time students staff the Journal.  Students receive invitations to join the Journal based on their academic success and writing skills.  The Journal provides each member additional educational opportunities by promoting excellence in research, writing, and analytical skills.

Both the Fall and Spring issues are comprised of three sections including Articles, Notes and Comments, and Legislative Summaries.  The Fall issue featured commentary on a variety of relevant subjects while the Spring issue focuses on a single, timely area of Georgia law. Journal staff members work cooperatively with authors to further the Journal’s mission by creating, editing, and publishing each issue.

The John Marshall Law Journal’s mission is to serve as an informative resource to Georgia’s legal community by focusing each issue of the Journal on areas of law that have a direct impact on the state and the nation.  In the Spring, the Journal hosts a Symposium, at which authors of the published pieces in the Spring issue, as well as panelists, and attendees, examine recent and pending legislation, significant court decisions, student commentary, and contributions by preeminent Georgia scholars and practitioners.

The Journal invites article submissions for publication in either the Fall or Spring issue from faculty members, educators, members of the judiciary and legal practitioners. The Journal receives submissions through ExpressO; however, submissions may also be emailed to the Executive Articles Editor, at articleseditor@johnmarshall.edu.

To submit an article for publication in either the Fall or Spring issue, please email articleseditor@johnmarshall.edu. To register and view information for the 2014 John Marshall Law Journal Symposium, click here.
