Journal of Constitutional Law

Visit the Journal of Constitutional Law Website

 The University of Pennsylvania Journal of Constitutional Law (JCL) provides a forum for the academic advancement and interdisciplinary study of constitutional law. To that end, JCL cultivates innovative scholarship, promotes critical perspectives, and reinvents the traditional study of constitutional law. Since its founding, JCL has emerged as a leading publication and remains the only publication in the Ivy League that exclusively concentrates on issues of constitutional law. As a result of its position within the legal academy, JCL is fortunate to receive and publish the work of some of the leading scholars in the field from all over the world, including the Honorable Sandra Day O’Connor, the Honorable Guido Calabresi, Richard Epstein, Laurence Tribe, Seth Kreimer, Kermit Roosevelt, Erwin Chemerinsky, Marci Hamilton, Barry Cushman, Sandy Levinson, Martin Redish, David Rudovsky, Mark Tushnet, the Honorable Douglas H. Ginsburg, and Jerry Mashaw.

As part of its mission, JCL is committed to publishing five issues each year via both print and electronic mediums. It is one of only six non-law review publications ranked in the top 50 for the most citations and impact. During the 2019-2020 academic year, JCL will publish its 22nd volume. The journal also sponsors an annual symposium on a topic at the cutting edge of constitutional law and has an active online presence through JCL Online, which publishes a Fall and Spring online supplement to the print edition.
