Law & Inequality: A Journal of Theory and Practice was founded in 1981 under the direction of Professor Catharine MacKinnon. The Journal publishes articles by lawyers and non-lawyers in order to provide the intellectual insight and practical depth necessary for a true understanding of inequality. Articles focus on race, poverty, sexual orientation, gender, age, disability, and other unique issues of inequality. Journal articles can be social, empirical, doctrinal, experiential, literary, or community-based. Each volume of the Journal is comprised of two issues: Winter and Summer.
