Welcome from the Editor-in-Chief

To our readers:

Welcome to the website for the Syracuse Law and Civic Engagement Forum, and thank you for your interest and engagement. We hope you will enjoy our interactive and interdisciplinary forum and journal. SLACE has been publishing legal scholarship since 2013, and our goal is to publish scholarly works that challenge public conceptions and encourage discourse.

We publish one online volume each year in our journal, while also maintaining an active blog; I encourage you to check them both out. Slace prides itself on publishing articles that are at the forefront of public discourse today, such as marriage equality, criminal justice reform, and our newest issue on judicial independence. Please stay tuned for the theme for the 2017-2018 academic year! Should you be interested in writing for us, you can find our submission guidelines here: bit.ly/SLACEsubmit.

On behalf of the entire SLACE Editorial Staff, thank you for visiting our website. Please do not hesitate to engage with our material, make submissions or suggestions, or contact us with any comments.
