About this Journal
The Legislation and Policy Brief was founded in 2008 as the Legislation and Policy Roundtable by Tiana Butcher, Lauren Gilius, and Elizabeth Chernow. The goal of the Roundtable was to provide a legal analysis of current legislative initiatives and policies through an entirely electronic publication and to encourage meaningful debate through the "Roundtable Live" panel series. Initial articles had a specific theme, the first of which was on Election Law. That issue was accompanied by a panel focusing on disenfranchisement and fraud in the 2008 Elections.
The Legislation and Policy Brief took its current name in 2009. It has continued the legacy of the Roundtable by publishing an issue once a semester, and by hosting a forum at least once a semester.
In 2011, the Brief started its own online blog, located at www.legislationandpolicy.com, to provide readers and staff members the ability to discuss a greater diversity of current issues.
