UI Law's Journal Of Gender, Race And Justice Celebrates 10 Years

The University of Iowa College of Law's Journal of Gender, Race and Justice will commemorate its 10th anniversary during its annual banquet on Saturday, April 8, in the River Room in the Iowa Memorial Union.

Past editors and writers for the Journal will return to celebrate the anniversary, with remarks from Julie Ralston Aoki, its first coordinating editor. Pat Cain, UI law professor and vice provost, will deliver the keynote address.

All Journal alumni are invited to attend. Those interested can contact Journal editor Eugenio Mollo at eugenio-mollo@uiowa.edu, or by calling 319-335-9093.

Conceived in 1996, the Journal published its first issue in the fall of 1997 and has grown into a nationally recognized legal publication. Published three times a year, the Journal explores how Americans are classified, stratified, ignored and singled out under the law because of race, sex, gender, economic class, ability, sexual identity and the multitude of labels applied by society.
