Ashwin Krishnan (Editor-in-Chief) and Josh Podoll (Submissions Editor) at the Harvard Journal of Sports and Entertainment Law (JSEL) are currently soliciting and reviewing submissions for the very first edition of its Journal. Their plan is to publish the inaugural issue of the Journal in Spring 2010 and they believe that you kind people reading this blog might have written just the type of piece they are looking for.
JSEL will provide the academic community, the sports and entertainment industries, and the broader legal profession with scholarly analysis and research related to the legal aspects of the sports and entertainment communities. The Journal is accepting articles, essays, book reviews, notes, and comments regarding legal and/or public policy issues from academics and legal practitioners for its upcoming inaugural issue. JSEL is one of the few journals in the United States that focuses exclusively on legal topics related to sports and entertainment.
Legal topics that affect sports and entertainment include antitrust law, civil procedure, constitutional law, contract law, corporate law, copyright law, labor law, and real estate law. In addition, there are many other legal topics that have an impact on the sports and entertainment industries, or otherwise have an application to sports and entertainment.
Submissions are being accepted on a rolling basis. To be considered for the first issue, please send completed submissions no later than November 15, 2009. The editors also made a point to note that an indication of your interest before that date would be greatly appreciated.
All submissions must be sent to Josh Podoll, Submissions Editor, as an attached Microsoft Word document via email to [email protected]. Also, please feel free to contact Josh regarding any questions you may have concerning citation format, topic, or other issues involving the submissions process.
