The Connecticut Public Interest Law Journal is a student-run scholarly journal that publishes works by professors, judges, practitioners, and students. The Journal’s publications are subjected to a rigorous editorial board process designed to strengthen their substance, tone and accuracy. The Journal’s primary purpose is to further the discussion of legal aspects of public interest issues and especially those confronting underrepresented individuals. The Journal is a forum for such intellectual discussion and is a force for change and progress. The Journal was recently named one of the top ten civil rights journals in the United States by ExpressO, a leading law review submission organization operated by the Berkeley Electronic Press.
