Loyola’s Journal of Public Interest Law is a scholarly journal published biannually by a student editorial board with faculty supervision. The Journal was founded as the Loyola Poverty Law Journal during the 1993-1994 academic year to explore the legal issues faced by those unable to afford legal representation such as the indigent, children, and the elderly. In 2000, the Journal was renamed the Journal of Public Interest Law. Today, the Journal publishes scholarly articles, practitioner articles, lectures, student comments, and case notes that address local, national, and international legal issues faced by underrepresented populations. The Journal welcomes submissions on all public interest topics including the environment, public international law, animal rights, immigration law, disability law, criminal justice, health care, freedom of speech and religion, and education rights and opportunities. The Journal’s spring volume is devoted to a symposium on public interest law. Past symposia have explored predatory lending practices (Spring 2009), education reform (Spring 2010), state criminal regulation of immigrants and immigration related activities (Spring 2011), prosecutorial misconduct (Spring 2012), narratives of diversity (Spring 2013), prison reform (Spring 2014), workplace justice (Spring 2015), children’s rights and immigration (Spring 2016), bail reform (Spring 2019), movement lawyering (Spring 2020), and structural racism and the law (Spring 2021).
