This editorial write-up by the Editorial Committee

Canadian Journal Of Law & Society

JLS is a scholarly dialectical forum for students who come to law school with a passion to redress social injustices. International Collaboration accounts for the articles that have been produced by researchers from several countries. The chart shows the ratio of a journal’s documents signed by researchers from more than one country; that is including more than one country address. Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal’s published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents. Evolution of the total number of citations and journal’s self-citations received by a journal’s published documents during the three previous years.

Led by Editor-in-Chief Steve K. Choi, the Spring 2005 edition of the Journal published works by two authors, focused on treatment programs for adolescents in correctional and detention facilities and retroactivity of the FSIA in Austria v. Altmann. MJLScombines the best elements of peer-reviewed journals and student-run journals to speed up the process by which cutting-edge scholarship can enter scholarly debates and inform the public consciousness. The words justice and judge have similar meanings because they have a common ancestry. They are derived from the same Latin term, jus, which is defined in dictionaries as “right” and “law.” However, those definitions of jus are so broad that they obscure the details of what the term meant when it formed the words that eventually became justice and judge. The etymology of jus reveals the kind of right and law it signified was related to the concepts of restriction and obligation.

For topics on particular articles, maintain the dialogue through the usual channels with your editor. Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore “citable”, this chart shows the ratio of a journal’s articles including substantial research in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers. The “moving wall” represents the time period between the last issue available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal. In rare instances, a publisher has elected to have a “zero” moving wall, so their current issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication. A title history is the publication history of a journal and includes a listing of the family of related journals.

The most common relationship is to a previous and/or continuing title, where a journal continues publishing with a change to its official title. Other common relationships include a journal that is a supplement to another journal, a journal that is absorbed into another journal, a journal that splits into two or more new journals, or two or more journals that merge to form a new journal. For each of these related journals, the title history lists the dates published. The Spring 2012 edition of the Journal welcomed Alexander Fullman as Editor-in-Chief and published works from six undergraduate authors, covering topics such as a global mandated choice organ procurement program and the California DREAM Act. The intersection of secular, Western intellectual property law and Islamic law is undertheorized in legal scholarship.

Subscription and online access to the American Journal of Law & Medicine. The USC Journal of Law and Society carefully considers all submissions that it receives on a rolling basis. Our selection process ensures that every paper is thoroughly and collaboratively reviewed, though papers submitted before the final deadline are given first consideration. The Journal of Law and Society recruits new Associate Editors for each school year in the fall semester. Footnotes should be used only to explain or clarify a point made in the text. They are not to be used for references except where a large number of authors are cited.

We encourage students from a wide range of disciplines to submit their work. Papers should relate to an aspect of law and society in some manner, but need not have these topics as the central theme. Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide. Forged from a partnership between a university press and a library, Project MUSE is a trusted part of the academic and scholarly community it serves. The Journal of Law and Society is a quarterly peer-reviewed law journal which publishes papers in the field of the sociology of law. It was established in 1974 as the British Journal of Law and Society, obtaining its current name in 1982.

The Asian Journal of Law and Society adds an increasingly important Asian perspective to global law and society scholarship. Its coverage of Asia is broad and stretches from East Asia, South Asia and South East Asia to Central Asia. A unique combination of a base in Asia and an international editorial team creates a forum for Asian and Western scholars to exchange ideas of interest to Asian scholars and professionals, those working in or on Asia, as well as all working on law and society issues globally. It provides the latest announcements and news in health law, medicine, ethics, public policy, public health, and all of the related disciplines that ASLME covers.

The Spring 2019 publication of the Journal welcomed Madeline Goossen back as Editor-in-Chief. This will be Chynna’s second year working with JLS and she will be stepping up her position from Associate Editor to Lead Editor and Director of Public Relations. Outside of the classroom, she is a part of Women’s Leadership Society and Publish and Prosper, an editing network designed to assist high schoolers. She is also an avid runner and plans to take up new hobbies this semester such as piano. Her future goal is to attend law school, where she will focus on international law.
