Congratulations on your admission to Harvard Law School! If you are interested in the intersections of law and gender, we hope that you will make the Harvard Journal of Law and Gender a part of your experience at HLS. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our email listserv!
The Harvard Journal of Law and Gender (originally the Harvard Women’s Law Journal) is the nation’s oldest continuously publishing feminist law journal. JLG is devoted to the advancement of feminist jurisprudence and the study of law and gender. By combining political, economic, historical, sociological, and legal perspectives, we seek to clarify legal issues that have gendered aspects and implications, and to confront new challenges to full social equality. Our journal also explores the interconnections between race, class, sexuality, and gender in the law.
