Thought Leadership on Policy Issues

Journal of Law and Public Policy

About the Journal of Law and Public Policy

The St. Thomas Journal of Law and Public Policy (JLPP) is a student-run journal that promotes modern legal thought through analysis of contemporary public policy. It raises awareness and provides expert thought on timely public policy issues by utilizing several forums, including academically rigorous symposia, publication of articles and community events. It integrates all viewpoints to sharpen and improve the public policies of the state and federal governments of the United States of America.

By strengthening professional relationships, utilizing practical skills for the workplace and stimulating scholarly discussion, JLPP seeks to provide students with an opportunity to develop their critical research and writing skills and to make a meaningful contribution to legal professionals and American society.

Join JLPP

The Law Journal and Journal of Law and Public Policy team up each year to hold a "write-on" competition through which both journals gain new members from the University of St. Thomas School of Law student body. The competition is held the week after 1L spring semester finals each year, and involves a 10-page closed memo assignment and an editing exercise.
