Volume 1 through 3 are available online at The Journal publishes one edition annually and has Westlaw citations for all articles.


The Journal welcomes article submissions for its fourth edition to be published in December of 2016. Articles should generally discuss the intersection of animals, disabilities and current law and policy concerns. Submissions, which should provide a comparative exploration of as many states in the mid-Atlantic region as possible (national articles will be reviewed for publication as well), will be considered for potential publication.


Abstracts are due by April 1, 2016. Selections will be made shortly thereafter, and completed articles will be due by May 1, 2016. Alternatively, if you have a completed article, you may submit it along with an abstract summarizing the article to us. Priority consideration will be given to completed articles.

The Mid-Atlantic Journal on Law & Public Policy seeks a limited number of Staff or Student Editors to participate in our fourth edition to be published this December. As with the previous editions, this volume will be predominantly based in the field of animal and disability law but may incorporate other Mid-Atlantic law and policy issues. The only expertise necessary is a willingness to roll up your sleeves and dedicate your time to a worthwhile cause. Students will be offered the opportunity to publish a Note or an article for our journal which will have Westlaw citations.


Applications MUST be submitted by COB, Friday, April 1, 2016. Decisions will be made the following week. Please ensure that you have no conflicts before contacting us.


Journal members may not concurrently serve on any other journal or law review, but Journal staff will consider exceptions. The work will primarily be performed electronically as we are an online journal with print copies made for our staff and writers. Initial time commitment is flexible but will be about 5 hours per week for the next few months with increased time commitments near the deadlines. Only second or third year law students may apply. If you are an evening student and feel you meet this criteria, please contact us directly. Students are encouraged to participate on the Journal including in senior editor and management positions, and may continue to participate even after graduation.


For further information, or to send in your application (resume attached and cover letter pasted into the email body please), please contact the Journal staff at The Journal is a non-profit entity and there are no conflicts with using your Westlaw/LexisNexis accounts for research.
