I hope this message finds you well, and that you are having a restful and productive summer. My name is Kayla Zhu, and I represent the Columbia University Journal of Politics and Society, the United States’ premier undergraduate social science research journal. We publish papers from all social science disciplines, including political science, economics, sociology, history, psychology, linguistics, law, anthropology, criminology, cultural and area studies, development studies, and demography.
As part of our ongoing efforts to reach the best undergraduate students from all manner of backgrounds, we are reaching out to hundreds of professors, deans, and administrators from around the world, including Williams College!
Now that we have come to the end of AY 2020-21, we hope that you would be willing to share the attached document with your students and let them know of this opportunity to publish their work in our Spring 2022 publication. This is an especially good opportunity to submit their undergraduate theses, capstone papers, or any seminar papers completed over the past semester.
Submission guidelines and instructions can be found in the attached document. Further information and past editions of the Journal are also accessible via our website. Please also feel free to reach out to myself or our executive board ([email protected]) with any questions or concerns you have regarding our organisation or our process. And as always, thank you for your continued support of the Journal’s work. Without people such as yourself, we would never be able to do the work that we do and find the amazing papers we publish.

Amherst College Undergraduate Law Review Mission Statement
The Amherst College Law Review (ACLR) was born out of the desire to foster
undergraduate scholarship in the liberal arts. Among our peers, the ACLR stands alone for its
interdisciplinary approach to the study of law.
Given the ever-changing nature of our society, students of law encounter a host of new,
troubling, and intriguing questions including, but not limited to, increasing inequality, salience of
technology, and neoliberal globalization. These questions cannot be fully posed, much less
answered, within the scope of conventional legal training and/or the traditional social sciences.
The mission of the ACLR is to pose these questions and to strive to answer them with the
nuance, clarity, probity, and rigor provided by the liberal arts tradition. This journal brings the
best scholarship of the contemporary humanities to bear on the most difficult and urgent juridical
problems of our time.
