The Mid-Atlantic Journal on Law and Public Policy: Animal and Disability Reporter is seeking to publish its next installment during its publication cycle of December to December. As such, the Journal seeks authors and staffers for its forthcoming issue to be published in December of 2016.
ABOUT THE JOURNAL:
The Mid-Atlantic Journal on Law and Public Policy is a Law Journal that focuses on legal and policy issues affecting the Mid-Atlantic region, specifically, Animal law and Disability issues. The Journal is a part of a larger group called the Mid-Atlantic Lyceum which holds events throughout the year and is affiliated with the Maryland State Bar Association’s Animal Law Section. In fact, the founders of the Journal and the Lyceum, Gary Norman and Josh Friedman, founded the MSBA Animal Law Symposium which is held annually in April at Westminster Hall, University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. The Journal is run and edited by practicing attorneys and law students. It is included on Westlaw and is published online and in a hard copy annually.
PUBLISHING OPPORTUNITY FOR LAW STUDENTS:
- Persons wanting to be involved with the Journal should provide a brief resume (in Word format) and a brief statement of interest in the body of an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, also copying Gary C. Norman (email@example.com).
- As long as notes or articles have a focus on animals or a focus on disability, all the better if inter-related, the Journal is inclined to closely review the proposed piece for publication; pending it meets their standards.
- Staffers will sign a volunteerism agreement with the Lyceum, the holder of the Journal. Staffers will be asked, if they are located in the Mid-Atlantic region in Maryland or in the District of Columbia, to attend a face-to-face mixer with mentorship opportunities.
- If there are questions about this opportunity with the Journal, students may telephone Gary C. Norman, Co-Executive Editor, at (410) 241-6745.
