The Southern California Interdisciplinary Law Journal (ILJ) was founded in 1991 to assess contemporary society, conceive new and unique legal methodology, and seek solutions to contemporary societal problems. The Journal seeks to do this by challenging traditional legal scholarship through the perspectives of disciplines upon which the law is premised. As a result, the Journal provides a framework upon which the future of the law must grow.
