The Tulane Journal of Law & Sexuality is a student-edited law review published by Tulane University Law School. It covers issues surrounding the LGBT community and publishes the winning article of the annual National LGBT Bar Association Michael Greenberg Student Writing Competition.[1]

History[edit]

The journal was established in 1991 as Law & Sexuality: A Review of Lesbian and Gay Legal Issues, becoming the first[citation needed] legal publication dedicated solely to analysis of LGBT issues. In 1997, the journal's title was amended to Law & Sexuality: A Review of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Legal Issues. In the Spring of 2012, the journal obtained its current title, Tulane Journal of Law & Sexuality: A Review of Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in the Law.
