Call for Papers: Law & Social Movements

Accepting Submissions | April 22 – July 22, 2022

ABOUT

The Michigan Journal of Law & Society (MJLS) is the nation’s first law-school journal to focus on the intersections of law, history, and the social sciences. MJLS is also the nation’s first law-school journal to incorporate law students, PhD students, and a faculty editorial board into its review and editorial processes. MJLS can be contacted at [email protected]

DESCRIPTION

MJLS invites article submissions for its second issue on the theme of Law & Social Movements. Social movements intersect with the law in important and complicated ways. The law can provide a vocabulary of resistance, facilitate the formation of collective identities, and provide a pathway for expanding rights. It can also constrain and influence behavior, stifle change, and hinder social mobilization. To facilitate dialogue at a moment when social movements continue to both engage the law and find ways to circumvent legal frameworks, the Michigan Journal of Law & Society invites article submissions that explore the various intersections between law and social-reform movements. We will not place spatial or temporal limits on article submissions.
