MIT Press and Harvard Law Professors Start The American Journal of Law and Equality

The MIT Press partnered with three Harvard Law School professors (Randall L. Kennedy, Martha Minow, and Cass R. Sunstein) to develop The American Journal of Law and Equality, a journal that focuses on issues of inequality. Kennedy, Minow, and Sunstein will serve as editors of the journal, which will publish once a year and include a diversity of scholarship and views from experts and practitioners from in and outside the legal academy.” The first issue is planned for this summer.

“I think that legal academic work at its best improves understanding and also improves practice,” says Sunstein. He hopes the journal will foster “a better understanding of the inequality questions that our country faces, and that better understanding will inform better practice.” He mentions potential topics as the Equal Protection Clause, civil rights laws and the criminal justice system, and matters of economics, environmental justice, safety and health, and tax.

“I think the law is a tool, but it has so far proved an inadequate tool to address inequality in American society,” says Minow. “We have to spend more time on the inequalities that are embedded in the law itself, and in the legal system itself.”
