The members of the University of Massachusetts Law Review are very excited by all of the changes that the acquisition by UMass brings, and we appreciate the record number of submissions we received to our Vol 5: Trends and Issues in Terrorism and the Law. We have just published our second issue since the acquisition, Trends and Issues in Education and the Law (2011). We are excited that the legal community has taken such a significant interest in our selected topics.
We are currently accepting article submissions for our first general topic issue which will be published in December 2012.
We are also actively processing article and note submissions for our 2013 journal on Trends and Issues in Immigration and the Law.
