Savannah Law School Faculty Members Set to Have Scholarly Articles Published in Top Ranked Law Journals

April 30, 2014

computer and notepadSavannah Law School is pleased to announce six faculty members and the directors of the Office of Academic Achievement and Career Development and Externships have received offers to publish their scholarly articles in some of the nation’s top law school journals.

Savannah Law School faculty burst into spring by producing a high volume of scholarly articles set for publication in top 100 ranked law school journals. Five of the nine scholarly articles will appear in law reviews in spring 2014, one in the summer of 2014, one in the fall of 2014, and two are slated for 2015. Subjects researched and explored range from state treatment of the unconscionability doctrine to homelessness as it relates to property law.

Much of this scholarship has already garnered recognition and awards. One scholarly article, Caprice L. Roberts, Remedies Unified in Nine Verses, 74 Maryland L. Rev. (forthcoming 2014) will be the lead article for the Maryland Law Review. Another, Elizabeth Berenguer, A Call for Change: A Contextual-Configurative Analysis of Florida’s ‘Stand Your Ground’ Laws, 68 U. Miami L. Rev. (forthcoming 2014) was solicited for publication prior to being written.

In addition, this year Professor Luke Boso received a prestigious Dukeminier Award for his scholarly article, Urban Bias, Rural Sexual Minorities, and the Courts, 60 UCLA L. Rev. 562 (2013). The Dukeminier Awards acknowledge the best “law review articles published on sexual orientation and gender identity law issues.” The award is administered through the Williams Institute at UCLA School of Law.

These faculty publications are the fruits of some of the brightest minds in the legal profession and a testament to Savannah Law School’s ability to attract the best in legal academia. With decades of combined legal experience, the faculty is dedicated to imparting knowledge and wisdom upon the students while enhancing the legal profession.
