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.


We are proud to announce that Volume VIII of the Southern Journal of Policy and Justice under the theme "Ending the Scourge of Disenfranchisement: The Evolution of Social Justice in America" is currently being printed.  They will be dispersed shortly.
