How do you start a Law Journal
« on: August 23, 2007, 09:20:52 AM »
I was wondering if anyone has had any experience creating a Law Journal at their school.  We have two journals/reviews at my school:  a general law review and one that focuses on corporate law.  I would like to createa law journal that examines administrative law and public policy issues, such as the formation of the Department of Homeland Security.  If anyone has any idea on how I would go about starting this, please let me know.

Go talk to a professor you trust and respect who also has some expertise in the area you want to start the jounral in. I worked with a group starting a new business journal last year- you probably need 20+ students committed to the idea as well as faculty support and funding. It's best to approach the idea with a student group already on existence on your campus.
