Law schools are known for their efforts to create online law journals, and the Rutgers Journal of Law and Religion was the “first online legal journal dedicated to the study of the dynamic interaction between law and religion.” Started in 1999, the journal has published dozens of articles written by law students at Rutgers, and they have covered subjects such as the role of faith-based institutions in community development and the status of female refugees. Visitors can browse through their online archives to read these articles, and they may also wish look over their “New Developments” section. Here they will find brief summaries of current issues in law and religion. With its broad scope, this online journal will be of interest to those in the legal field, or those who might be looking for inspiration to start their own journal in this area.
