Bearing Witness: A Journal on Law and Social Responsibility


Bearing Witness is a new, nontraditional publication at Suffolk University Law School that serves as a forum for sharing experiences and facilitating conversations about law and social responsibility.

Social Responsibility

We believe social responsibility is a person's obligation to use the law in a manner that creates a more just, compassionate and enriching society.


Submissions are accepted from students, faculty, alums and staff of the Suffolk University Law School community. Submissions may include short scholarly essays, opinion pieces, personal reflections, narrative fiction, poetry and art.


The deadline for submissions in our Fall 2014 issue is September 12, 2014 at midnight.
