St. John’s University School of Law Announces a Call for Papers to Address the Crisis of Race and Inequality in the Criminal Justice System

Members of the southern Nevada legal and scholarly community are invited to submit manuscripts to be considered for publication in The Journal of Civil Rights and Economic Development, a publication of The Ronald H. Brown Center for Civil Rights and Economic Development at the St. John’s University School of Law. This call for papers has been requested by H. Brendan Lee, Senior Executive Editor and Candidate for J.D., 2016 at St. John’s. Manuscripts are to address the topic: “Is There a Solution?: The Crisis of Race and Inequality in the Criminal Justice System.” The deadline for submissions of manuscripts has been extended to October 16, 2015.

The school publishes four issues of this journal each year which cover a range of racial, social and economic justice topics.

In addition to being published in their paper symposium issue, one of the authors will be selected to travel to New York City and do a day-in-residence at SJU Law as a guest of JCRED and The Ronald H. Brown Center for Civil Rights and Economic Development.
