Racial disproportionality in child welfare call for papers: Children's Legal Rights Journal Vol. 43

Posted by Kristin Briner, community karma 51

The Children’s Legal Rights Journal is seeking submissions on racial bias in the child protection system.

The Children’s Legal Rights Journal (CLRJ) is a national scholarly journal sponsored by Loyola University Chicago School of Law with the National Association of Counsel for Children. We publish articles covering a variety of children’s legal rights issues and are the only journal in the country that exclusively addresses the legal needs of children. 


What We Are Looking For:

We invite you to submit articles that critically examine bias and racial disparities in the child protection system. We are looking for submissions that address some aspect of racial disparity in child protection or education, analyze the impacts on the rights of children of color and their families, propose needed radical reforms or address recent calls to abolish the system, and/or provide practical suggestions for advocates and practitioners seeking to create an equitable system for all families. 

Submission Details Submissions should be previously unpublished, original pieces.  All articles should be between 15-60 pages double spaced and contain footnote citations that conform to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation. Submissions from current law students will not be accepted. Submissions will be reviewed and accepted on a rolling basis for Volume 43 issues.
