Editors: Nestor M. Davidson, Professor and Director, Urban Law Center, Fordham University School of Law, and Patricia E. Salkin, Dean and Professor of Law, Touro College - Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center

Sponsors: Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center: Touro Law Center (http://www.tourolaw.edu) is an innovative law school located in Central Islip, NY that is dedicated to producing profession-ready graduates and to promoting social justice. It's rich state and local government offerings include: a disaster relief clinic and an institute on land use and sustainable development law that complement courses, externships and symposia. Touro Law faculty currently edit the Municipal Lawyer, a quarterly publication of the NYSBA Municipal Law Section. Fordham Urban Law Center: The Fordham Urban Law Center (http://law.fordham.edu/urbanlawcenter.htm) focuses on the many intersections between our legal system and contemporary urbanism. The Center conducts research into questions of urban law, convenes experts across a number of domains, and seeks to link scholarship to policy on the most pressing issues facing America's metropolitan areas.

Description: This eJournal includes working and accepted paper abstracts that examine urban, state, and local government law and policy. States and local governments have primary responsibility for much of the basic infrastructure of the law - from property, torts, and contracts to the foundations of criminal law - and provide the public services that are of most immediate importance to everyday life. This eJournal encourages submissions from scholars engaged in researching every aspect of the work of state and local governments, including papers also published in related topic-specific eJournals. It is the goal of this eJournal to foster dialogue about state and local government law, both within the legal academy and across cognate disciplines.
