Seal of lady justice with a scroll with "Wisconsin Journal of Law, Gender and Society" around it


The Wisconsin Journal of Law, Gender & Society publishes articles that focus on the full and equal protection of both men and women, free of gender stereotypes, in all aspects of society. A majority of our articles speak from a legal or public policy stand point; however, we occasionally publish scholarly essays, memoirs, and book reviews. We publish professional as well as student pieces, especially those that have originated from our writing program.
