About

The N.Y.U. Journal of Legislation and Public Policy is a nonpartisan periodical specializing in the analysis of local, state, and federal legislation and policy. The Journal provides a forum for the discussion of contemporary legislative issues, focusing on legislative reform and the organizational and procedural factors affecting the efficiency of legislative decision making. The Journal also focuses on the role of public policy and the continuing interplay of legislation and public policy in the local, state, and federal systems. It is the goal of the Journal to offer legislators, judges, practitioners, students, and educators the most in-depth legal analysis of proposed and enacted legislation available.

Publication

The Journal is student-edited and publishes four issues per volume, on an academic year basis. Generally each volume consists of three compilation issues and one symposium issue. The compilation issues contain articles, comments, and notes that normally do not discuss the same topic of legislation. The symposium issue consists of papers presented in connection with our annual program and, accordingly, contains works that are related in topic.

The Journal is available electronically on LEXIS and WESTLAW. ISSN No. 1094-513X, and is indexed in ABC POL SCI, America: History and Life, Contents of Current Legal Periodicals, Historical Abstracts, Index to Legal Periodicals, and Legal Resource Index.
