Consortium wins grant to create journal

UGA’s Education Law Consortium has been awarded a $23,500 grant to create the nation’s first online interdisciplinary student journal for education law and policy. The ELC provides ready access to nonpartisan information, research and analysis to assist those setting education policy at the local, state and federal levels.

Education Law and Policy Forum will be a searchable and comprehensive online database of research on law and policy issues in education aimed at scholars, attorneys, students, administrators and faculty at all levels-including K-12 and higher education.

“The Education Law and Policy Forum will enable those interested in education to have immediate access to the latest research findings in the field without the delay that is experienced with traditional journals,” says Anne Proffitt Dupre, ELC co-director who holds a J. Alton Hosch Professorship at UGA’s School of Law.

ELC members coordinating the project are Dupre; co-director John P. Dayton, a professor at UGA’s College of Education; and J. Douglas Toma, a fellow of the ELC and an associate professor at the university’s Institute of Higher Education.
