The Asian American Law Journal Call for Submissions
The Asian American Law Journal (AALJ) at the UC Berkeley School of Law is pleased to invite article submissions for publication in our seventeenth volume.
As one of only two law journals dedicated to Asian American jurisprudence, we are committed to providing a forum for scholars, practitioners, and students to address legal and policy issues
relevant to the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. Our mission is to promote excellent scholarship that fosters awareness and dialogue within and beyond the legal community.
Past volumes have addressed such issues as immigration policy, civil liberties, community development, and political engagement. For more information and for further examples of submissions, please visit our website at http://www.boalt.org/aalj/.
Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and will be
reviewed on a rolling basis until October 15, 2009 for publication in Summer 2010. All submissions must meet the following requirements:
- Documents must be sent as a Microsoft Word attachment (.doc format).
- Documents must be double-spaced with 12-point Times New Roman font and one-inch margins.
- Submissions should be approximately 30 pages minimum.
- Footnotes must be within text (i.e., incorporated at end of each page) and must conform to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (18th ed.).
The mandate of the Asian American Law Journal is to publish commentary, analyses, and research on the experiences and concerns of Asian Americans. We believe that to advance the Asian American movement, we must recognize the diversity among Asian American
communities and cultivate scholarship that promotes understanding and empowerment in order to foster resistance to oppression and the achievement of justice. The movement includes, but is not limited to, the intersections of gender, class, sexual orientation, religion and
race. We recognize the histories of Pacific Islanders and support those who choose to maintain distinct community identities. In solidarity with all peoples who have been subordinated, we embrace the opportunity to publish works that address issues relating to all marginalized communities. The mission of our journal is to speak truth to power; to borrow from poet Janice Mirikitani, "We give testimony. Our noise is dangerous."
