Fordham Urban Law Journal - Call for Submission - Food Policy (November 2024)

Posted by Senior Articles Editor, community karma 97

The Fordham Urban Law Journal is accepting articles and essays for publication in our upcoming Volume 52.2. The Journal publishes themed issues, and Volume 52.2 will focus on food policy — what we eat, how we access food, and who is (or isn’t) able to access it. The Journal is seeking scholarship related to the impacts of local and federal food policies on urban populations, whether domestically or internationally. Volume 52.2 is set to publish in November 2024.

The Fordham Urban Law Journal is notable for addressing legal and public policy issues affecting urban populations across the world. The Journal is the second-oldest publication and most-cited specialty journal at Fordham Law School. The Journal is one of the most cited public policy law journals edited by students in the country and is one of the few journals that focuses particularly on urban legal policy.

We hope articles and essays submitted for this issue will address food deserts, access to nutritional foods, urban agriculture, and federal and local policy related to the aforementioned topics, though this list is far from exclusive. The Journal is seeking a variety of perspectives on this topic, noting what is working to feed hungry people in urban areas and what is not. We will accept proposals and outlines on this topic. We are seeking both essays over 5,000 words as well as articles over 10,000 words. One-page abstracts are due by June 3, 2024, and we would expect to receive first drafts around July 1, 2024.

Articles or essays, as well as proposals and outlines, can be submitted through online platforms, such as Scholastica, or by email directly to Should you have any other questions or concerns, please contact Jake Davis, Senior Articles Editor, at or 614-560-9090.
