The Catherine Albiston Prize for Recent Developments on Gender, Law & Justice
The Berkeley Journal of Gender, Law & Justice is now accepting submissions for its third annual student writing competition.
The Catherine Albiston Prize for Recent Developments on Gender, Law & Justice gives students the opportunity to submit pieces for publication in the Berkeley Journal of Gender, Law & Justice during the 2014-2015 academic year.
We invite submissions of research, analysis, narrative, theory, and commentary that critically examine the intersection of gender with one or more other axes of subordination, including, but not limited to, race, class, sexual orientation, and disability. Pieces may be geared toward theoretical legal philosophy or pragmatic, on-the-ground lawyering. We welcome interdisciplinary pieces, but there must be a focus on the law.
It is our experience that papers cannot be judged based on page-length, but rather on the underlying quality of work. With that in mind, we recommend that students submit a manuscript of 30 – 50 pages.
Mandate: Submissions should meet the mandate of the journal.
Our mandate is to publish feminist legal scholarship that critically examines the intersection of gender with one or more other axes of subordination, including, but not limited to, race, class, sexual orientation, and disability.
Because conditions of inequality are continually changing, our mandate is also continually evolving. Pieces may come within the mandate because of their subject matter or because of their analytical attention to differences in social location among women.
Eligibility: In order to qualify for selection, the author must be enrolled as a student in law school for the Spring semester of 2014. If any part of a paper has already been published, or is to be published elsewhere, we cannot accept the piece.
Instructions for Submission:
All entries must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 1st, 2014.
