Emory Law Journal

Founded in 1952 as the Journal of Public Law, the student-edited Emory Law Journal has been publishing academic, professional, and student-authored pieces on the full range of legal subjects since 1978. ELJ publishes six issues of legal scholarship along with ELJ Online, its online companion. ELJ also hosts the Randolph W. Thrower Symposium in the spring semester, bringing together legal scholars from across the country to discuss timely legal topics. ELJ »

IP Theory

IP Theory, founded in 2010 at Indiana University Maurer School of Law, is an online, peer-edited, open-access intellectual property law publication. In 2013, Emory Law joined as a partner of the publication. Neither law journal nor blog, it occupies a niche between the two. It serves as a new forum for essays and opinion pieces that are more concise than typical law journal articles, as well as book and other literature reviews. IPT »

Journal of Law and Religion

The Journal of Law and Religion is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal edited by the Center for the Study of Law and Religion, with student participation, and published in collaboration with Cambridge University Press. Since 1982, JLR has been the leading academic journal publishing interdisciplinary and interfaith scholarship at the the intersection of law and religion. In 2013, JLR became an Emory-edited journal. JLR »
