Women's Law Journal

Mission: The UCLA Women’s Law Journal, established in 1989, is dedicated to the critical analysis of gender as it is structured and reinforced by the law and legal institutions. Integral to this mission is the promotion of scholarship that attends to the ways that race, class, ability, sexuality, nationality, religion, and other forms of marginalization constitute and intersect with gender as a lived and legal reality. We strive to incorporate critiques of the law as a tool of oppression, as well as solutions for collective liberation that operate within and beyond the law.

The WLJ situates itself in the evolving and multifaceted feminist movement, attuned to the dynamic challenges facing women and other marginalized genders beyond the walls of legal academia. As part of this mandate, the journal contests the boundaries of traditional legal scholarship. We publish poems, reflections, and short stories in addition to standard law review articles and include the voices of students, practitioners, and law professors.
