Brooklyn Law School is pleased to announce the launch of Practicum, an online scholarly journal. Serving as an online companion to the Law School’s four scholarly print journals, Practicum will continue the Law School’s tradition of excellence in scholarly research and writing in its academic journals.
“Practicum is a welcome addition to the Law School’s family of highly-regarded print journals,” said Dean Nick Allard. “This journal will stand as a bridge between traditional print scholarship and evolving new technology formats presented for critical thinking about legal developments by both scholars and practitioners.”
Created by a dedicated group of students from the Brooklyn Law Review, Brooklyn Journal of International Law, Journal of Law and Policy, and Brooklyn Journal of Corporate, Financial & Commercial Law, Practicum will publish scholarship on timely issues in an accessible forum on the web and provide an outlet for alumni, practitioners and students to reflect on news, issues, and developments in the law and legal theory.
Practicum seeks pieces that are significantly shorter than the articles in traditional Law School print journals, but the submissions are still subject to the same thorough editing process as in print journals.
“The editing process assures that Practicum maintains rigorous academic standards while still allowing for more colloquial, practitioner-oriented content and a more rapid production schedule appropriate to the web medium,” said Professor David Reiss, faculty advisor for Practicum.
