American University Journal of Gender, Social Policy & the Law

The American University Journal of Gender, Social Policy & the Law, founded in 1992, provides a forum for those interested in gender issues and feminist legal studies. In 1998, the Journal expanded its mission to include social policy as well as gender issues. Our current approach reflects our intent to fill a void in legal scholarship by providing an opportunity for academic discussion that is otherwise overlooked by traditional journals. By focusing on gender and social policy issues, we are committed to creating a dialogue among disparate social, economic, and gender groups in order to find our common humanity under the law.

The Journal of Gender, Social Policy & the Law is published by students at American University, Washington College of Law. Prior to volume seven, the Journal was known as the American University Journal of Gender & the Law. In 1998, the Journal changed its name in an effort to reflect the more expansive range of topics published in the Journal.

As always, the Journal remains dedicated to exploring gender and social issues in the law, providing a forum where those of all views can engage in rewarding and challenging discourse and debate.

The Washington & Lee University School of Law ranks the Journal of Gender, Social Policy & the Law as the most cited legal periodical in the United States and selected non-U.S. regions in the topical area of gender, social policy and the law.

Additionally, the Journal of Gender, Social Policy & the Law has been ranked as one of the top subject-specific law reviews in the “2006 ExpressO Law Review Submission Guide.”
