The Columbia Journal of Race and Law is a student-edited law journal, which strives to promote scholarship that examines issues surrounding racial and ethnic justice. The Journal's mission is to establish a dialogue on historic and contemporary notions of socio-political and legal challenges facing racial and ethnic minorities. While recognizing the overlapping intersections amongst racial and ethnic groups, the Journal hopes to embrace the continual importance of prioritizing this discourse as a means of better understanding contemporary issues, in addition to embarking on new paths for social progress. The Journal seeks to publish articles written by scholars, practitioners, and students which make a substantive contribution to the current dialogue surrounding issues such as affirmative action, immigration, employment law, community development, criminal law, environmental justice, voting rights, and education.
The CJRL staff is open to all second- and third-year students, including transfer students and LL.M students. Members of the editorial board are chosen from among the second-year staff.
