Acting as the scholarly voice of the Law School’s Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights, The Journal of Law in Society provides discourse at the intersection of law and society. Each year, the journal identifies a range of issues affecting Detroit and other parts of the world and then publishes articles that address those issues within their social context. The journal publishes twice a year and hosts an academic symposium on topics relevant to the larger Detroit area.

The purpose of the journal is to build awareness about issues of concern and to make connections with scholars, jurists, legal practitioners, community organizations, and students involved in researching, combating, and solving these issues.
