Women's Law Journal

Mission: The UCLA Women's Law Journal is an academic legal journal that uses the power of language to educate people and make women's voices heard. We seek to do so by focusing not only on the common struggles of women, but also on diversity as a strength in feminist legal scholarship. Through diversity, we seek to represent the reality of all women's lives and experiences, without separating voices into exclusionary categories.

The WLJ was one of the first journals in the country to address issues of gender, race and sexual orientation. The Journal remains one of the top journals in the field, with hundreds of subscribers around the world.

The WLJ is an entirely student-run law journal. We publish works by professors, practitioners and students from around the world, who represent all sides of the legal, political, religious and cultural spectrum. The Journal is published twice a year and is available on Lexis and Westlaw.

  • Call for Submissions

    The UCLA Women's Law Journal is currently not accepting submissions for publication. We will likely begin accepting submissions again in Spring 2021. For any inquiries, please contact: wlj@lawnet.ucla.edu.
