The Berkeley Journal of African-American Law & Policy (BJALP) is dedicated to addressing legal and policy issues that affect African-American communities and people of color, in general. The Journal deals with such matters as constitutional law, criminal justice, civil rights, African-American participation in the political process, the death penalty, fair housing, economic development in African-American communities, African immigration to the United States, health issues that affect African-Americans, as well as issues affecting Africa and the African Diaspora.

"The publication will work toward ultimately improving conditions for African-American communities by infusing intellectual discourse with provocative and innovative scholarship, thus deepening thinking about policy options and choices."
