Call for Submissions: Rutgers Women's Rights Law Reporter

Rutgers School of Law - Newark: Women's Rights Law Reporter: Call for Papers on Gender Law and Family Law :

The Women's Rights Law Reporter is a quarterly journal of legal scholarship and feminist criticism published by students at the Rutgers School of Law in Newark, NJ. Now-Supreme Court Justice Ruther Bader Ginsburg founded the Reporter in 1970. It is the oldest legal periodical in the United State focused on gender rights.

The Reporter plans to publish a Special Issue in Spring/Summer 2009 devoted to the intersection of Family Law and Gender Law. This special issue is in keeping with the Reporter's three decades of examination of areas of law and public policy relating to gender rights. The Reporter invites submissions of papers for inclusion in this issue on topics including, but not limited to:

How does same-sex marriage implicate questions of gender and/or reinvent gender?
How does gender affect marriage promotion policies; for example, in same-sex marriage laws?
Is family law is the new gender law?
How can family law influence queer theory, and vice-versa?
What is the current relationship between family law and queer law, and how might it develop?
How will state and federal family leave acts be affected by gender?

The deadline for submissions is January 31, 2009.


Manuscripts should be typed and double-spaced with standard one-inch margins and include footnotes that follow The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (Eighteenth Edition).

Please include a CV and cover letter that includes a biographic note and a brief article abstract.


The Reporter will accepts submissions electronically or by post.
