The Belmont Law Review is an annually published student-managed, student-edited scholarly journal at Belmont University College of Law. Each issue of the Law Review publishes articles from law professors and practitioners, as well as notes from current law students. In addition to publication, the Belmont Law Review hosts an annual symposium on a topic significantly impacting the legal community.
Current Volume: Volume 6 (2018) Symposium 2018: The Modern Workplace: Contemporary Legal Issues in Employment & Labor Law
Since its inception in 2012, the Belmont Law Review has enthusiastically sought to create and preserve a platform for intellectual exchange on topics affecting the legal profession. The members of this student-managed, student-edited scholarly journal dedicate themselves to facilitating, promoting, and engaging in valuable legal discourse through the Law Review's annual symposium and publications.
This second issue in Volume VI marks an important step in the Law Review's history. For the first time, our volume contains two issues. Issue II is comprised of one student note and seven articles written by presenters from our 2018 symposium: The Modern Workplace: Contemporary Legal Issues in Employment & Labor Law. We are thankful to the authors in this issue for allowing our staff to help put their research, writing, and vision into this publication.
The Law Review also wishes to express its appreciation to the College of Law faculty, staff, and administration for supporting and advancing the Law Review's intentions. We extend particular gratitude to Professor Jeffrey Usman, whose unyielding help and guidance is instrumental in steering the Law Review at each turn.
Lastly, to the Law Review staff members, I extend my deepest gratitude. This necessary and challenging step for our journal required dedication and attention, and each staff member humbly accepted the demands. Many thanks to Ashley Walter for your teamwork and friendship as we ventured into this uncharted territory.
