TMLR > 2012-2013 Journals
38-1, Fall, 2012: The Fall 2012 journal will focus on civil
rights issues with a particular emphasis in the area of employment
38-2, Spring, 2013: The Spring 2013 journal will focus on energy
issues and attempt to explore the legal dilemmas created by emergent
technology in the oil, gas, and renewable energy sectors.
The Thurgood Marshall Law Review hopes to provide a forum for
thought-provoking dialogue on what has become a major concern.
Potential issues include, but are not limited to:
- What is the top priority for future discussion of energy policy?
- What is the role of law, including courts, regulators, and legislators, in facilitating or hindering
inclusive dialogues on energy production, transmission, regulation, and consumption?
- Who and what are necessary to foster a complete and productive discussion on energy?
- What is the future of oil and gas? What resources and innovation are needed to take exploration to the next level?
- What is the projected cost of future exploration for oil and gas?
(e.g. costs-financial, social, environmental)
- What are alternative methods to fueling American and foreign economies?
- How do we address the national security, foreign policy and international legal issues
surrounding energy supply and demand?
- What are the environmental and human impacts of conventional energy sources?
- What are the legal issues or other hurdles with renewable energy?
