About Us

Originally founded in 1983 by the Black Law Students Association, the Harvard BlackLetter Law Journal is an annual publication edited by students at Harvard Law School.


BlackLetter is committed to publishing manuscripts that address social and economic issues affecting racial and ethnic minorities as well as innovative works by minority scholars and students.


BlackLetter invites Harvard Law students and our community beyond Harvard Law  to join us for events on issues of race, gender, class, and sexuality, including our annual symposium.
