UCLA Women’s Law Journal

ISSN (Print): 1068-9893

ISSN (Online): 1943-1708

The UCLA Women’s Law Journal is an academic legal journal that uses the power of language to educate people and make women’s voices heard. We seek to do so by focusing not only on the common struggles of women, but also on diversity as a strength in feminist legal scholarship. Through diversity, we seek to represent the reality of all women’s lives and experiences, without separating voices into exclusionary categories.

The WLJ was one of the first journals in the country to address issues of gender, race, and sexual orientation. The Journal remains one of the top journals in the field, with hundreds of subscribers around the world.

The WLJ is an entirely student-run law journal. We publish works by professors, practitioners, and students from around the world, who represent all sides of the legal, political, religious, and cultural spectrum. The Journal is published twice a year and is available on Lexis and Westlaw.

The entire backlist of WLJ is now freely available online.
