Call for Papers: Georgetown Journal on Poverty Law & Policy

Georgetown Journal on Poverty Law & Policy

Call for Papers

That the poor are invisible is one of the most important things about them. They are not simply neglected and forgotten as in the old rhetoric of reform; what is much worse, they are not seen.

           -Michael Harrington, The Other America (1962).


We would like to invite you to submit an article for consideration of publication to the Georgetown Journal on Poverty Law & Policy.  GJPLP is the nation's premier law journal on poverty and it publishes articles from distinguished law professors and practitioners in poverty-related disciplines. Highly-regarded and widely-distributed among attorneys, policy-makers, academics, students and public interest groups, GJPLP plays a key role in forging the national debate on poverty issues by raising awareness, offering analysis, and crafting solutions.


For the 2007-2008 academic year, GJPLP will continue its commitment to publishing high-quality articles related to poverty, especially those that explore the subjects of our three topical issues: health, labor, and youth. GJPLP considers traditional law review articles, as well as case studies, case comments, and narrative submissions for publication. Additionally, GJPLP welcomes all methodologies and seeks innovative approaches to poverty law and policy.


Submission guidelines are as follows:

  • Formatting: typed, text double-spaced, footnotes single-spaced, one-inch margins, 12-point Times New Roman font.
  • Citations: Must conform to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation, published by the Harvard Law Review Association.
  • Additional Information: author’s name, telephone number, and email address, as well as the title and a summary of the article.
  • Submission Methods: 1) via email at jplp@georgetown.edu; 2) by mail to the address below.
  • Unsolicited manuscripts are welcome but will only be returned if accompanied by a self-addressed stamped envelope. 

For further information, please contact jplp@law.georgetown.edu. All Journals reserve the right, at any time, to accept or reject any article, note or comment, outright or conditionally.
