University of Pennsylvania Journal of Law and Social Change (JLSC)

We are a progressive, student-run journal and seminar that espouses an interdisciplinary scholarly approach to challenge social injustice. JLASC is unique among Penn Law Journals both in our mission and process. All journal members participate in journal decision-making by collectively reviewing, selecting and editing each piece of scholarship. Our broad mission attracts articles from a diverse range of legal scholars, practitioners and activists around the country. We embrace theory and practice, featuring interdisciplinary scholarship that has practical implications beyond the legal community. Each 3L member is responsible for leading one ten to fifteen-minute seminar session during the year, on a topic of his or her choosing, and all members are expected to actively participate in discussion of course materials.
