Widener’s newest Journal, the Widener Journal of Law, Economics and Race
) is an online Journal published jointly by both the Delaware and Harrisburg campuses of Widener University School of Law. Its first issue was published in Spring 2010, Vol I Issue I. Since then, the Journal has continued to publish a new volume during the fall and spring semesters.
The Widener Journal of Law, Economics & Race is a forum for in-depth analysis and critically and socially relevant discourse on the intersection of the law, race, and economics in America. The goal is to provide a space for scholars, practitioners, and students to expand the exploration of issues of race and economics, and to create a resource from which policy makers can draw new ideas to address legal and economic problems in our society.
Journal contents are derived from a variety of sources, some sponsored and web-cast by WJLER; student-authored works from the student bodies of both campuses; distinguished Widener graduates; and other professors, judges, and legal practitioners. The journal has student/faculty editorial board and an advisory board which includes Widener alumni and other legal scholars from the community. The content is offered exclusively online, via other electronic media, but limited print runs have been planned.
Conceived and organized by three evening division law students, the Widener Journal of Law, Economics & Race was also made possible due to the joint efforts of the Dean of Widener Law School; the faculty of both Law School campuses; and a generous donation by the law firm of Maron Marvel Bradley and Anderson, headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware with offices in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
In addition to publishing scholarly articles, the journal publishes weekly blogs on various topics involving race and economics. Past topics included: "Minorities in the Corporate World," "Race and Economics in the Media," "The Economics of Discrimination," and many more topics.
