About the Journal

Originally founded in 1983 as an internal publication of the Black Law Students Association, the Harvard Journal on Racial & Ethnic Justice—until 2009, the Harvard BlackLetter Law Journal—is an annual publication edited by students at Harvard Law School. JREJ is committed to publishing manuscripts that address social and economic issues affecting racial and ethnic minorities, as well as publishing innovative works by minority scholars and students. Through an interdisciplinary approach, we confront the law on issues of race, gender, class, and sexuality; we are pleased to have published leading articles by professors, judges, practitioners, and students.


Subscriptions include a copy of the most recent volume, a special invitation to all events including our annual symposium, and periodic updates through our email list. View prices and subscribe through the Harvard Law School student journals office.


JREJ solicits manuscripts annually. Please check this website or our Twitter account for updates on when we are accepting submissions.
