  • The UCLA National Black Law Journal has been committed to scholarly discourse exploring the intersection of race and the law for 35 years. The NBLJ was started in 1970 by five African-American law students and two African-American law professors. The Journal was the first of its kind in the country. Because of the drop in African-American students at UCLA School of Law after the passage of Proposition 209, the Journal was sent to Columbia where publication could be continued. One of the Journal's founding editors noted that it was important that there be a forum for providing a theoretical framework for practical daily application of black legal ideas and concepts.
