The Fordham Urban Law Journal has a strong history of addressing legal and public policy issues affecting urban populations across the nation and throughout the world. The Journal is the second-oldest publication and most-cited specialty journal at Fordham Law School. The Journal is also the second-most cited public policy law journal edited by students in the country and is one of the few journals that focuses particularly on urban legal policy.
Articles and essays for this Issue can examine any aspect of the Knick v. Township of Scott case. We are striving to explore the topic from various angles and perspectives. We hope authors will address the multitude of issues brought about in the wake of the Knick decision, including the impact on the takings doctrine and the practical effects on takings litigation going forward. We are accepting both essays over 5,000 words, and articles over 10,000 words. One-page abstracts will be due by September 6, 2019.
Articles or essays, as well as proposals and outlines, can be submitted through online platforms, such as Scholastica or Express-O, or by email directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. Should you have any other inquiries, questions or concerns, please reach out to Maura Tracy, Senior Articles Editor, at email@example.com.
