About the Journal
The Grove City College Journal of Law & Public Policy was organized in the fall of 2009 and is devoted to the academic discussion of law and public policy and the pursuit of scholarly research. Organized by co-founders James Van Eerden ’12, Kevin Hoffman ’11, and Steven Irwin ’12, the Journal was originally sponsored by the Grove City College Law Society. The unique, close-knit nature of the College’s community allows the Journal to feature the work of undergraduates, faculty, and alumni, together in one publication.
Nearly entirely student-managed, the Journal serves as an educational tool for undergraduate students to gain invaluable experience that will be helpful in graduate school and their future careers. The participation of alumni and faculty editors and the inclusion of alumni and faculty submissions add credence to the publication and allow for natural mentoring to take place. The Journal continues to impact educational communities around the country and can now be found in the law libraries of Akron University, Duquesne University, Pittsburgh University, and Pennsylvania State University. The Journal has been featured by the Heritage Foundation and continues to be supported by a myriad of law schools, law firms, and think tanks around the nation. Currently, the Journal is distributed to over 1,500 supporters in 42 states and 3 countries.
