The Journal of Law in Society was established by Wayne Law students in 1997 to provide for the scholarly evaluation of the law in relation to various segments of society. The Journal addresses social policy issues in a legal context, with participation from legal scholars, jurists, practitioners and students.

The Journal is managed and edited by Wayne Law students. Membership is limited to students who participate in a competitive write-on process held each year during May and June. The Journal is published twice annually during the academic year. Additionally, The Journal Board hosts an annual academic symposium every spring. This year's symposium is titled "Rebuilding the Post-Industrial City" and will be held March 26, 2010 in the Law School's Spencer M. Partrich Auditorium. More information can be found online at
