The Duke Journal of Constitutional Law & Public Policy (DJCLPP) is a scholarly publication that examines legal issues at the intersection of constitutional litigation and public policy. DJCLPP serves as both a practical resource for lawyers, judges, and legislators who confront cutting-edge constitutional and public policy issues and a forum for intellectual discourse surrounding these issues. DJCLPP aims to enhance the community’s understanding of constitutional law and public policy and to arm practitioners with arguments and proposals for reform.
The Journal publishes two issues a year: a fall issue containing traditional law review articles, as well as practical or policy related essays, notes, and remarks by practitioners, judges, legislators, students, professors, and authoritative commentators; and a spring issue for its annual symposium. Authors interested in publishing with DJCLPP should submit articles, notes, and essays to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to its two published issues, DJCLPP regularly publishes timely comments on topical trends and current subjects of constitutional law and public policy online. These comments allow journal members to discuss the implications of current Supreme Court cases. Authors interested in publishing with DJCLPP in the Sidebar should submit works that are both timely and short (3-15 pages) to CLJ with a subject line of “For Sidebar Publication.”
DJCLPP publishes exclusively online, starting with Volume 9. Previous issues can be accessed here.
Interested Duke Law students should contact the Editor-in-Chief to find out more about becoming a member of the Journal.
