Released three times a year, The Children's Legal Rights Journal (CLRJ) is edited by Loyola students with the cooperation of the National Association of Counsel for Children. The CLRJ focuses on the broad range of legal issues confronting children. Its goal is to provide practitioners in law and related fields with the practical resources they need to be effective advocates for their child clients. The CLRJ encourages interdisciplinary submissions as well as more traditional law-related articles.

This online format allows for more timely treatment of emerging issues in children’s law, expands access to the CLRJ’s content to a national and international audience, and includes interactive features, including links to web sources, advanced search capabilities, and supplemental materials and interviews with leaders in the field of child advocacy.
