Asian American Law Journal – Call for Submissions

The Asian American Law Journal (AALJ) at Berkeley Law is now accepting submissions for its 2021-2022 volume!

What is the Asian American Law Journal (AALJ)? AALJ is one of only two law journals focused on Asian American communities. Since 1993, they have provided a scholarly forum for the exploration of unique legal concerns of Asian Americans, including but not limited to the East Asian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Asian Pacific American communities. Each annual volume typically contains articles, book reviews, essays, and other contributions from scholars, practitioners, and students.

What topics and issues does AALJ feature? They welcome commentary, analysis, and research on the experiences and concerns of Asian Americans, including the intersections of gender, class, sexual orientation, religion and race. This year, they are particularly interested in scholarship reflecting on the issues and events from the last two years: xenophobia and the general rise in anti-Asian hate crime; COVID-19’s disproportionate impact on poor communities of color; George Floyd’s murder, the Movement for Black Lives, and Asian American communities’ roles in advocating for racial justice; the election; the insurrection; the Atlanta spa shootings and the continued marginalization of Asian sex workers, among others. 

Is there a specific format or word limit? AALJ recognizes that the law article format may limit the expression of important ways in which the law intersects with lived experience, beyond doctrine and formal analysis. AALJ also welcomes essays and other written formats that explore the unique legal concerns of Asian American communities. Consider their archives for references. (Recently they have enjoyed Professor Carlos Hiraldo’s Arroz Frito with Salsa: Asian Latinos and the Future of the United States, Professor Mari Matsuda’s Planet Asian America, and Professor Robert Chang’s article, AALJ’s inaugural piece, Toward an Asian American Legal Scholarship.)

Is there a deadline? Yes, all submissions are due Aug. 20, though AALJ makes publication offers on a rolling basis. Please send your submissions to aalj@berkeley.edu or through Scholastica.

What if I have more questions? Please send them a note, they would love to connect.

I don’t have anything to submit, but I know someone who might. What can I do? For those in the position to do so, they would appreciate you forwarding this note to your departments, teams, and friends or colleagues who may be interested in publishing with AALJ.
