Ten law students have been elected to the 2017-18 Executive Board of The Journal of Law in Society at Wayne State University Law School.

They are:

- Editor-in-Chief Jonathan Demers of Detroit.
- Managing Editor Albert Asciutto of Waterford.
- Reviewing Editor Madeline Sinkovich of Novi.
- Symposium Director Casey Thal of Detroit.
- Senior Note Editors Dana Fraser of Westland, Shareece McCauley of Westland and Jessica Soblesky of Canton.
- Executive Article Editors Laura Biery of Grosse Pointe Farms, Nicklas Candea of Detroit and Linda Girard of Detroit.

Acting as the scholarly voice of the law school's Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights, The Journal of Law in Society provides discourse on the junctions of law and society. Each year, the Journal identifies a range of issues affecting Detroit and other parts of the world and then publishes articles that address those issues within their social context.

The Journal publishes twice a year and hosts an academic symposium on topics relevant to the larger Detroit area. This fall, it will host its symposium and publish a themed issue acknowledging 50 years since the 1967 Detroit Race Rebellion.

The purpose of the Journal is to build awareness about issues of concern and to make connections with scholars, jurists, legal practitioners, community organizations and students involved in researching, combating and solving these issues. The Journal celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

The Journal is managed and edited by Wayne Law students with support from faculty advisor Peter J. Hammer, professor of law and director of the Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights.
