The Ramapo Journal of Law and Society is an interdisciplinary, online journal devoted to the publication of undergraduate scholarship in Law and Society. The Journal’s mission is to provide a platform to undergraduate students from across disciplines to engage with socio-legal issues in the context of the liberal arts. We understand law and society broadly to include discussions of law in society not just as rigid bodies of rules but as dynamic institutions shaped by historical forces and social imperatives. The journal will include submissions from varied fields of the social sciences and humanities, and hopes to build conversations across disciplines on the topical socio-legal issues of our times.
The journal is published by an editorial board of students and faculty representing the Ramapo College undergraduate program in Law and Society, in collaboration with our colleagues at other colleges and universities nationwide.
