Call for Submissions: Fordham Urban Law Journal Vol. 46.3

Posted by Ruhi Behal, community karma 31

The Fordham Urban Law Journal is accepting articles for its Volume 46, April 2019 Issue.  The Journal publishes themed Issues, this one focusing on Urban Immigration. We ask that all articles be submitted by February 10, 2019 in word format.

The Fordham Urban Law Journal has a strong history of addressing legal and public policy issues affecting urban populations across the nation and throughout the world.  The Journal is second-oldest publication and the most-cited specialty journal at Fordham Law School.  Further, the Journal is the second-most cited public policy law journal edited by students in the country and is one of the few journals publishing articles directly related to urban justice and policy.

This Spring 2019 Issue will focus on the varied aspects of urban immigration during the current era, particularly on the array of unique challenges immigrants and cities face in the time of constantly changing and frequently unjust immigration policies.  Some appropriate topics for this Issue include addressing urban refugees and how cities adapt to the needs of refugees, asylum seekers, and noncitizens; a comparative study on different models of ‘sanctuary’ in cities and other institutions; changes in immigration organizing efforts in urban areas.  This list is in no way exhaustive, and the Journal invites you to submit any article you believe deserves attention.

Articles can be submitted through online platforms, such as Scholastica or ExpressO, or by email directly to  Should you have any other inquiries, questions or concerns, please reach out to Ruhi Behal, Cooper-Walsh Articles Editor, at
