I would just like to repeat Frank Cross's post of about a month ago, see here, alerting our readership to two new SSRN journals that have a substantial empirical focus, one of which is edited by our own Frank Cross (Law and Courts). The other, Law and Politics, released an issue today. You can sign up for one or both of these journals through the "subscriptions" option of your "SSRN User Headquarters." They are listed among the SSRN legal subject matter journals. The descriptions of the journals follow:
Law and Courts will distribute abstracts of working papers, forthcoming articles, and recently published articles dealing with judicial decisionmaking, including the determinants of decisions, the
influence of outside parties and other institutions, and the societal impact of those decisions.
Law and Politics is dedicated to the distribution of empirical and theoretical scholarship from a multidisciplinary perspective. The journal welcomes any submissions that analyze politics and the legal process, democratic institutions, the separation of powers, the impact of politics on development of law, and any other abstracts that examine the political nature of law. Contributions from legal scholars, political scientists, economists, sociologists, psychologists, and other disciplines are welcome.
