JOURNAL HISTORY

 

The Loyola University New Orleans Journal of Public Interest Law is a scholarly journal published biannually by the student editorial board with the financial support of the Gillis Long Poverty Law Center.  The Journal was founded as the Loyola Poverty Law Journal during the 1993-1994 academic year, and was initially devoted to addressing legal issues faced by those unable to afford legal representation such as indigents, children, and the elderly. 

 

In 2000, the Journal broadened its scope and was renamed The Loyola University New Orleans Journal of Public Interest Law.  Today, the Journal publishes practitioner articles, lectures, student comments, and casenotes addressing both 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, and constitutional issues such as rights of the disabled, criminal justice, health care, freedom of speech and religion, and education rights and opportunities.

 

The Journal celebrated the 10th anniversary of the inaugural issue with the Spring 2005 issue.
