» Diversity and Social Justice Forum

publication coverThe Diversity and Social Justice Forum is a student-run scholarly publication at Chapman University Dale E. Fowler School of Law, dedicated to providing a forum that can give expression and representation to a wide spectrum of progressive and diverse voices at Chapman. We believe that the key to fostering a strong and diverse student body is to ensure that we do not confine ourselves to an echo chamber, and that we are not dismissive of alternate viewpoints and methods. The Diversity and Social Justice Forum hopes to promote a climate of engagement and dialogue with a wide spectrum of views and values. To this end, the Diversity and Social Justice Forum hosts an annual symposium on issues of social justice, and publishes the DSJ Forum, an online publication featuring practice-oriented issues of social justice, including any aspect of the underlying legal or humanitarian concerns, legal or policy solutions, or the work of movements organizing to address the problem.

Submission Guidelines

The Chapman University Dale E. Fowler School of Law Diversity And Social Justice Forum is currently published once a year. The DSJ Forum welcomes the submission of unsolicited legal manuscripts discussing issues of social justice, including any aspect of the underlying legal or humanitarian concerns, legal or policy solutions, or the work of movements organizing to address the problem. We especially welcome practice-oriented articles that discuss barriers to justice and the strategies implemented to overcome those barriers both in the courtroom and in the streets. Our goal is to provide a resource to practitioners and community organizers. Articles should be no more than 5000 words in length (not including footnotes). Citations should conform to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (20th edition, 2015). Once a submission is selected, our editors will work with the author to prepare the submission for publication. Authors will retain copyrights after publication. Please address inquiries and unsolicited submissions to the Chair of Publication at: dsjforum@gmail.com.
