GJPLP Submissions

We invite you to submit an article to be considered for publication in the Georgetown Journal on Poverty Law & Policy. The GJPLP is the nation's premier law journal on poverty issues and it publishes articles from distinguished law professors and practitioners in poverty-related disciplines

For Volume 23, GJPLP plans to publish three issues throughout the 2015-2016 academic year. GJPLP will consider law review articles as well as case studies, case comments, and narrative submissions for publication. GJPLP welcomes all methodologies and seeks innovative approaches to poverty law and policy.

If published in GJPLP, your work will be distributed to attorneys, politicians, policy makers, academics, students, public interest groups and service providers nationwide. With your involvement, GJPLP can continue to play a key role in forging the debate on poverty issues domestically and internationally by raising awareness, offering analysis, and crafting solutions.
