The Cardozo Journal of Law and Gender has been a pioneer in gender-related legal scholarship for over twenty years.
The Cardozo Journal of Law & Gender began as the Cardozo Women's Law Journal, publishing its first volume in 1994. Recognizing the expansion of legal and social developments on topics such as gender, sexuality, and family law, the 2005-2006 Board sought to create a niche for these growing fields at Cardozo. Since its inception as the Cardozo Journal of Law & Gender in 2005, our Journal has stood out among related publications. The Cardozo Journal of Law & Gender is home to groundbreaking legal research, the only annotated legal bibliography of its kind and an annual Symposium covering themes such as the Innocence Project, education, religion, sexuality, marriage and the law, reproductive justice, environmental considerations for women and families in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, human trafficking, and intersex issues. Whether you are visiting our Journal to learn more about our publication, to submit articles or to read through past volumes, we welcome you and thank you for your interest.

For any law students feeling helpless right now, here are some key things you can do as provided by #Law4BlackLives:
This week, grim videos of the police killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile dominated social media. Alton, Philando, and Delrawn Small of Brooklyn, and Henry Green from Ohio are among the latest Black people killed by police in a daily and brutal pattern of anti-Black state violence. People...

I will not share the video of #AltonSterling, a 37 year old Black man from Louisiana and a father of 5, being murdered by police last night. I'd rather share this photo of him living and happy. Why do we engage in circulating footage and photos of lifeless Black bodies? Please be mindful and cautious in partaking in this. If you're going to do it regardless, at least, please add a TW. Check the tag, google his name. May he rest in power. #BlackLivesMatter
Closest thing on Earth to paradise? Maybe.
Taking care of yourself is especially important in times like these:

For all those - especially QTPOC and WOC - who are told they are too much, too bitter, and need to change their tone:

Philando Castile Was a Role Model to Hundreds of Kids
The police shooting victim memorized the names of 500 students and their food allergies

Sexual Abuse of Children in New York State
A panel of distinguished guest speakers will discuss who and what blocks the NY Child Victims Act, a bill in the NY legislature that would protect children by identifying perpetrators protected by institutions, often placed in contact with children. The bill would reform the current Statutes of Limitation that deny victims the right to bring a case to court after age 23.
When: Sunday, March 13, 2016 from 3 PM to 5:30 PM
Where: Cardozo Law School Moot Court Room, Corner of Fifth Ave. and 12th St., Manhattan.
Jennifer Haselberger, JCL, PhD is a canon lawyer who resigned as the former top legal counsel for the Archdiocese of Minneapolis-St. Paul and spoke publicly about her concerns over the way the diocese was handling recent cases of abuse. She was honored by CTA at the 2015 national conference. Her story is one of courage.
Marci Hamilton is a nationally renowned professor of constitutional law at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. Professor Hamilton is also an author and lecturer on the protection of vulnerable children from institutions, and a national leader and advocate for legislative reform of the statute of limitations. Her story is one of commitment to children.

The question of how the Court's opinion is drafted is almost as important as what result it ultimately reaches.
