Call for Submissions: Fordham Urban Law Journal Vol. 51.2

Posted by Senior Articles Editor, community karma 97

The Fordham Urban Law Journal is accepting articles and essays for Volume 51.2.  The Journal publishes themed Issues, this one focusing broadly on the relationship between government and property owners in urban environments.  We envision authors contributing scholarship not only about real property, but tangible and intangible personal property as well.


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 the second-oldest publication and most-cited specialty journal at Fordham Law School.  The Journal is also the second-most cited public policy law journal edited by students in the country and is one of the few journals that focuses particularly on urban legal policy.  


Articles and essays for this Issue can examine any aspect of the aforementioned relationship.  We hope to explore the topic from various angles and perspectives.  Among other issues, we anticipate authors will address the Takings Clause of the U.S. Constitution, eminent domain, civil asset forfeiture, and other limitations on property rights.  We are accepting both essays over 5,000 words, and articles over 10,000 words.


Articles or essays may be submitted through online platforms, such as Scholastica, or by email directly to  Should you have any other inquiries, questions or concerns, please reach out to Paris Rogers, Senior Articles Editor, at
