Harvard Law School recently announced the formation of the Harvard Journal of Sports and Entertainment Law (“JSEL”). JSEL will provide the academic community, the sports and entertainment industries, and the broader legal profession with scholarly analysis and research related to the legal aspects of the sports and entertainment communities.

JSEL, published under the auspices of Harvard Law School, is accepting articles, essays, book reviews, notes, and comments regarding legal and/or public policy issues from academics and legal practitioners for its upcoming inaugural issue in Spring 2010. JSEL is one of the few journals in the United States that focuses exclusively on legal topics related to sports and entertainment.

Submissions to JSEL are being accepted on a rolling basis. To be considered for JSEL’s first issue, due to be published in Spring 2010, please send completed submissions no later than November 15, 2009. An indication of your interest before that date would also be greatly appreciated.

All submissions to JSEL should be sent to Josh Podoll, Submissions Editor, as an attached Microsoft Word document via email to jselsubmissions@gmail.com. Please visit JSEL’s website for further details regarding the submissions process at www.HarvardJSEL.com. Also, please feel free to contact Mr. Podoll with any questions you may have concerning citation format, topic, or other issues involving the submissions process. Finally, if you know of other scholars, practitioners, or students whose work seems appropriate for our journal, please encourage them to submit their work to JSEL.
