Reynolds Courts and Media Law Journal
We will begin publishing in 2011, and are seeking legal and scholarly articles on the interaction of the courts and the media, and the impact and implications of this interaction. Examples of possible article topics include, but are not limited to:

* Conflicts between First Amendment and Sixth Amendment principles and values
* Impact of social and new media on court proceedings
* Process and implications of online access to court records and proceedings
* Analysis of specific examples and cases of court-media conflict situations
Judges, attorneys, journalists and professors are invited to submit (via e-mail) ideas, proposals or drafts for articles of up to 30,000 words (including text and footnotes). The journal will be published in print and online.
Electronic submissions in Microsoft Word format strongly preferred. Association of Legal Writing Directors (ALWD) or Blue Book legal citation format is preferred; other social science citation formats are also accepted, but citations must be in footnotes, not endnotes or parentheticals.
Submissions, ideas and questions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
