Asian Pacific American Law Journal

Mission: The Asian Pacific American Law Journal (APALJ) focuses exclusively on the legal, social, and political issues affecting Asian Pacific American communities. APALJ plays an important role by providing a forum for legal scholars, practitioners, and students to communicate about emerging concerns and by disseminating these writings to the general population. We work hard to reach out to the community and initiate discourse on APALJ issues. APALJ members are involved in the entire journal publication process including selection, substantive editing, and cite-checking of all articles and comments. In addition to publishing law journals, APALJ hosts symposiums and live-speaker series.

Solicitation for Journal Submissions

APALJ is seeking submissions for publication on a year-round basis from students, professors, and lawyers. Submissions should be original pieces relating to legal, social and/or political issues affecting Asian Pacific American communities.  APALJ publishes not only traditional law review articles but also book reviews, response pieces, and other academic legal writing. There is no minimum or maximum limit for the number of submissions per author. If you would like to submit an article or have any questions, please reach out to us at
