Harvard Journal of Sports and Entertainment Law Launches; Seeks Submissions

The Harvard Journal of Sports and Entertainment Law has launched and is issuing a Call For Submissions. See below for the letter from EIC Ashwin Krishnan and Submissions Editor Josh Podoll.

September 29, 2009

On behalf of the editorial board, it is my distinct pleasure to announce the formation of the Harvard Journal of Sports and Entertainment Law (JSEL).  JSEL will provide the academic community, the sports and entertainment industries, and the broader legal profession with scholarly analysis and research related to the legal aspects of the sports and entertainment communities.

   JSEL, published under the auspices of Harvard Law School, is accepting articles, essays, book reviews, notes, and comments regarding legal and/or public policy issues from academics and legal practitioners for its upcoming inaugural issue in Spring 2010.  JSEL is one of the few journals in the United States that focuses exclusively on legal topics related to sports and entertainment.

 

   As you are probably aware, legal topics that affect sports and entertainment include antitrust law, civil procedure, constitutional law, contract law, corporate law, copyright law, labor law, and real estate law.  In addition, there are many other legal topics that have an impact on the sports and entertainment industries, or otherwise have an application to sports and entertainment. 

 

   Submissions are being accepted on a rolling basis.  To be considered for our first issue, due to be published in Spring 2010, please send completed submissions no later than November 15, 2009.  An indication of your interest before that date would also be greatly appreciated.

All submissions must be sent to Josh Podoll, Submissions Editor, as an attached Microsoft Word document via email to jselsubmissions@gmail.com. Please visit our website for further details regarding the submissions process at www.HarvardJSEL.com. Also, please feel free to contact Josh regarding any questions you may have concerning citation format, topic, or other issues involving the submissions process. If you know of other scholars, practitioners, or students whose work seems appropriate for our journal, please encourage them to submit their work to JSEL.

 

We look forward to receiving your submissions!
