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.

Upcoming Volume

Our Journal is hard at work on our next volume!

We are so excited about our upcoming issue, featuring pieces on drag and the First Amendment, free speech by teachers in the classroom, and proposed training requirements for health care providers as it relates to geriatric mental health, just to name a few.

Stay tuned for publication!


We were recently given a shoutout in an episode of the Excited Utterance podcast, which was recorded live at our most recent symposium. Give it a listen here!
