    The Journal's primary purpose is to disseminate information and ideas about law and sexual orientation in an efficient and timely manner. In addition to traditional scholarship the Journal will include a substantial proportion of essays, summaries and transcripts of oral presentations, surveys and student work. Also, our editorial process will be abbreviated. Though we plan to become a respected source of information, our primary goal is to be useful to the gay and lesbian legal community and the gay and lesbian community at large: to do that we need to have a quick turn-around time and be open to submissions of all types.

    By virtue of being available on-line, subscription to the Journal is free. Individuals can subscribe themselves by sending the following message (replacing the bracketed phrases with the appropriate information) to

    People sometimes ask me to add pages. I have very few rules, but I don't accept personals. Otherwise, if I like it, I'll add it. I'll probably post any hate mail I get. I get too much mail to respond to everyone, so I apologize for any offense if I don't respond.
