The Wisconsin Journal of Law, Gender & Society has named UW Law student Kathryn Pfefferle as editor-in-chief for 2016–17. She replaces outgoing editor-in-chief, Katherine Kratcha.
The student-run journal, published twice a year, includes articles by students and professionals on gender and the law. The journal also sponsors an annual symposium. Last February's symposium, “Faster, Higher, Stronger, Fairer, Better? A Critical Analysis of Gender & the Olympic Movement” focused on gender issues surrounding the Olympics, including the participation of transgender and intersex athletes and the feminine ideal.
Senior editorial board members for 2016–17 include:
- David Lanser, senior note and comment editor
- Lucie Butner and Jessa Hackman, senior managing articles editors
- Taryn Trujillo, senior submissions editor
- Mary Parmeter, symposium editor
- Eunmi Chang, business editor
Originally named the Wisconsin Women's Law Journal, the Wisconsin Journal of Law, Gender & Society is one of the earliest in the nation devoted to the study of women and the law. Its editorial board encourages articles that examine the intersection of law and gender with issues of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status and sexual orientation.
First-year students are eligible to participate in the journal's spring write-on competition, beginning immediately after finals in May. For more information, please contact Kathryn Pfefferle or David Lanser.
