About the Journal
The Brandeis University Law Journal, founded in 2008 by Judah Marans '11, is the only undergraduate-edited legal publication in the country that is unaffiliated with a law school. In Spring 2020, a group of undergraduates revived the Brandeis University Law Journal and have since been building on Judah’s legacy. We solicit, edit, and annually publish the work of Brandeis students, alumni, and faculty. Our articles cover a diverse array of topics with only two guiding criteria: the topic must in some way concern the Brandeis University community and the argument must be grounded in legal reasoning.
The Journal admires law school expertise, but at the same time embraces its own undergraduate status. It produces original theses in rigorously researched articles in addition to publishing articles written by students from various academic concentrations. The Journal holds an academic focus while maintaining a broadly engaging appeal. Its scholarly aspirations find expression in its hands-on educational purposes.
