The Tennessee Journal of Race, Gender and Social Justice is published twice a year by UT Law students. The journal provides an interdisciplinary academic platform that focuses on legal issues affecting people of different races, genders, and other societal forces. By focusing on legal developments in these areas, the journal allows scholars, students, and practitioners to improve racial, gender, and social relations through scholarly works, to foster research involving the subjects, and to provide an intelligent publication that strives towards the pursuit of social justice.
The first issue was published in spring 2012. RGSJ was established in the summer of 2011 by a group of law students seeking to diversify the content of the College of Law’s legal publications. The founding members of RGSJ sought to provide an interdisciplinary academic platform focused on legal issues involving race, gender, and social justice that have the potential to affect our local and national communities. RGSJ hosted its first Continuing Legal Education (CLE) program in the spring of 2014, and will continue to host programs for the legal community in the future.
