Fordham Urban Law Journal: Juvenile Justice Issue Review Period Extended to April 27th!

Posted by Eva Schneider, community karma 91
Due to requests, the Fordham Urban Law Journal will continue to review submissions for Volume 45's Juvenile Justice Issue until April 27, 9PM EST.  

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.  Heading into its 45th year, the Journal is the Law School’s second-oldest publication and its most-cited specialty journal.  The upcoming Juvenile Justice Issue seeks to highlight the ways in which the juvenile justice system has failed youth offenders, the effect this has on their communities, and the possibilities for legal and policy reform.  

Journal is specifically soliciting articles addressing New York's move to raise the age of criminal responsibility, and the closing of Rikers Island.  The Journal also welcomes articles addressing:  the school to prison pipeline; financial costs of juvenile detention; alternatives to incarceration; privacy concerns; access to justice issues; and the criminalization of youth.  This list is in no way exhaustive and we invite you to submit an article on any juvenile justice topic you believe deserves attention, before April 27, 9PM EST.

If you have any questions, please contact Eva Coruzzi Schneider, Senior Articles Editor, at

Thank you, and we look forward to reviewing your submissions!
