Call for student-written submissions for upcoming Journal on Legislation

The Journal on Legislation is now accepting student-written pieces for publication in its Summer 2014 issue. The Journal is looking for submissions on legislation and the legislative process. We prefer pieces that address a particular bill or statute, or that make a detailed legislative proposal. The Journal publishes both shorter Recent Developments and longer Notes written by students. Recent Developments should discuss recently enacted legislation or a recently introduced legislative proposal. These should include both a descriptive element, summarizing the bill or statute’s major provisions and including some discussion of its legislative history, and an argument of some kind. Notes may focus on a somewhat broader topic, but should still address a concrete piece of legislation or make a concrete legislative proposal. We favor student writing on legislative topics that are significant (related to a topic of significant popular or scholarly debate) and current. For more information, please direct questions to the JOL Student Writing Editor, Daniel Lorme, at  dlorme at jd14.law.harvard.edu. Past issues are available on our website at www.harvardjol.com.
