About the Journal of Global Justice and Public Policy

The Journal of Global Justice and Public Policy (“JGJPP”) is Regent University School of Law’s premier academic journal presenting original legal research related to the study of international human rights.  The JGJPP features articles, notes, case comments, and book reviews submitted by prominent authors, practitioners, and students. The JGJPP actively solicits manuscripts that address international law, global justice, the rule of law, public policy (foreign and domestic), international relations and diplomacy, comparative law, and decisions adopted by the European Court of Human Rights, the International Court of Justice, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, and the International Criminal Court. The JGJPP is committed to publishing interdisciplinary scholarship critically analyzing the significant social challenges and the persistent legal issues affecting the marginalized, disenfranchised, indigent, and abused, and works in association with the Center for Global Justice, Human Rights, and the Rule of Law. The JGJPP is led by a team of select law student editors, publishes biannually, and regularly organizes and sponsors conferences, symposia, ethnic enrichment experiences, and student diversity events/activities.

The JGJPP offers its student editors an important learning experience, providing opportunities to develop editing and writing skills, as well as other critical skills that are relevant to a successful law practice, including inter alia: communication, organization, project management, and a substantive knowledge of international law and legal issues. The JGJPP annually recruits a dedicated, accomplished and diverse staff of student editors.

JGJPP’s Seal

JGJPP’s seal reflects JGJPP’s mission – יהוה‎ is the Hebrew tetragrammaton, which traditionally has been associated with the name of God.  ἀλήθεια is the classical Greek concept of truth.  Iustitia is the Latin legal principle of justice.  JGJPP believes that with a knowledge of God, one is able to perceive truth, which permits the dissemination and establishment of justice.  The Mercator world map represents JGJPP’s global focus; and the azure border color and corresponding laurel identify JGJPP with transnational efforts to achieve international peace.
