Berkeley Journal of Gender, Law & Justice (Law Journals and Related Materials)
The Berkeley Journal of Gender, Law & Justice, a continuation of Berkeley Women’s Law Journal, was founded in 1984 by a group of students at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law who came together with a vision of “preserving our voices of diversity and maintaining our commitment to social change within the often-stifling confines of a law school environment.”
Now in its thirtieth year of publication, BGLJ is guided by an editorial policy that distinguishes us from other law reviews and feminist journals. Our mandate is to publish feminist legal scholarship that critically examines the intersection of gender with one or more axis of subordination, including, but not limited to, race, class, sexual orientation, and disability.
Because conditions of inequality are continually changing, our mandate is also continually evolving. Pieces may come within the mandate because of their subject matter or because of their analytical attention to differences in social location among women.
BGLJ currently publishes two issues annually, one in the winter and one in the summer. Past articles are available on Westlaw and Lexis. BGLJ should be cited as BERKELEY WOMEN’S L.J. for Volumes 1 to 19 and BERKELEY J. GENDER L. & JUST. for Volume 20 and all subsequent issues.
