The Georgetown Journal of Law & Public Policy (GJLPP) explores and critiques conservative, libertarian, and natural law. GJLPP partners with the Georgetown Center for the Constitution. The Journal publishes top-rate material from notable authors and outstanding students. GJLPP publishes student notes on topics as varied as space law, women’s rights under the Privileges or Immunities Clause, money markets and the SEC, and religious freedom.
Each issue includes articles from eminent scholars grappling with a particular constitutional issue. Authors who have published or will publish with GJLPP include scholars and public leaders such as Erwin Chemerinsky, John McGinnis, Richard Epstein, Paul Larkin, Senator Bill Frist, and Senator John McCain.
GJLPP is a relatively young journal but we take pride that our influence continues to grow. Justice Scalia cited our Journal in District of Columbia v. Heller, Justice Thomas in Northwest Austin Utility District v. Holder. State supreme courts, federal district courts, and numerous law reviews have also cited our journal as well.
GJLPP emphasizes libertarian and natural law scholarship. One of the greatest things that we contribute to the legal community is diversity of thought. We similarly value diverse perspectives within our journal. As a result, we welcome students whose ideas span the political and ideological spectrum.
