Message from the Editor-in-Chief.

Greetings,

 

The Southern Journal of Policy and Justice, formerly known as the SRBLSA Law Journal, is fully staffed and ready to began work for the 2014-2015 publication year.  As Editor-in-Chief, I hand-selected each new member after a grueling summer with an intense write on completion. While knowledge of basic legal writing principles were a must, I sought to find students who possessed creativity, reasoning, and uniqueness outside of their intelligence. This year's members will be more than a staff. We will strive to be a team of cohesive collaborators. I believe that new each member is qualified enough to help push the journal to greater limits.

 

It is with great pleasure that I announce the 2014-2015 journal staff for the Southern Journal of Policy and Justice.  Congratulations to the following:

 

-       Charmarcus Floyd, Belmont University College of Law

-       Nigel Phiri, Mercer University Law School

-       Shani Butler, Mississippi College School of Law

-       Kristinia Anderson, Texas A&M School of Law

-       Elizabeth Wan’gu, Duke University School of Law

-       Orlando Sheppard, Florida A&M University College of Law

-       Jesse Kelly, University of Mississippi School of Law
