The University of Maryland Law Journal of Race, Religion, Gender and Class is composed of approximately forty students who run all operations of the Journal. Third year students serve as editors who select and edit papers for publication, manage the Journal’s business operations, and organize an annual symposium. Second year Staff members ensure the accuracy of all published pieces and write case notes or comments. The Journal publishes approximately four student case notes and comments each year.The Journal began in 1999 as a two year clinical project. In May 2001, the University of Maryland School of Law approved the publication as one of the school’s four law journals.
