Recent Law Journal Name Change

The original name of this journal, The SRBLSA Law Journal, has been changed to The Southern Journal of Policy & Justice. This name change amendment is the result of a unanimous decision by the journal's executive board members in 2013. The new name reflects the journal's current vision and goals.
