Hastings Journal of Crime and Punishment (Law Journals)

ISSN 2642-8342
© Copyright University of California, Hastings College of the Law

Hastings Journal of Crime and Punishment (HJCP) is a forum in which meaningful discussion can occur on issues of criminal law, incarceration and the criminal justice system. Our intention is to establish a cross-disciplinary platform in which scholars and practitioners analyze criminal law and procedure as well as the different institutions of incarceration. From the pervasiveness of racial profiling to the shackles of collateral consequences, the criminal system disparately impacts the poor and people of color. A thorough examination of the various ways in which individuals are impacted by the criminal system is only possible with a diversity of perspectives. Therefore, we warmly invite the written analysis of those who traditionally have been excluded from legal scholarship, including incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people, as well as others who have been most affected by the criminal justice system. Ultimately, we believe that through the exploration of criminal law and its greater context in American society, HJCP can contribute to a critical discourse on punishment, justice and human dignity.

UC Law Environmental Journal (Law Journals)

ISSN 1080-0735
© Copyright University of California, College of the Law San Francisco

The UC Law Environmental Journal (formerly Hastings Environmental Law Journal) is in the process of transitioning from West-Northwest Journal of Environmental Law and Policy. The new direction of UCLEJ will continue the tradition of creating a legal forum for both academics and practitioners in areas of environmental law and policy, but will depart from the previous regional concentration that was inherent to West-Northwest.

With a broader focus, UCLEJ will be home to all aspects of environmental policy and legal issues, and will focus on scholarship regarding the most current issues from across the private, public, and nonprofit sectors. This journal will focus on creating a community of environmental scholars here at UC Law SF, and connecting them with the greater environmental community beyond. With articles and essays from a range of authors, including practicing attorneys, policy-makers, law students and professors, resource managers, scientists, citizen groups, and activists, UCLEJ will lead the way in identifying the most problematic issues in environmental law and policy and creating innovative solutions.

UC Law SF Journal on Gender and Justice (Law Journals)

ISSN 1061-0901
© Copyright University of California, College of the Law San Francisco

Since 1989, UC Law SF Journal on Gender and Justice (formerly Hastings Journal on Gender and the Law), previously known as Women’s Law Journal, has provided a forum for voices outside the traditional scope of legal academic scholarship. UCLJGJ publishes twice a year — giving its subscribers access to discussions on cutting-edge issues which many law journals either avoid or ignore. We are a progressive, diverse, open, and forward-looking collective of individuals working together to widen the scope of legal scholarship. To this end, UCLJGJ publishes works of literature, poems, book reviews, personal pieces, and, of course, legal analysis. We strongly believe that the law is a solution for the ills of the human condition, not merely a means of gaining and preserving privilege and position.
