About us

The Law Journal for Social Justice (“LJSJ”) is the first student-run and student-created online journal at Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University.   LJSJ edits, publishes, and produces notable works focusing on social justice issues through its online blog and journal from legal scholars, practitioners and law students.

Mission Statement

The LJSJ is a student-initiated and edited interdisciplinary journal that seeks to promote critical analysis and solution-driven dialogue on issues concerning the underrepresented and disenfranchised.

The LJSJ is acutely aware that with the privilege of membership in the legal profession comes the responsibility to rectify injustices. We recognize our duty to educate the community on a local and national scale about their legal rights and remedies so that real change is implemented.

At the core of its commitment, LJSJ strives to give voice to people who have been silenced for too long.
