The Modern American

The Modern American is American University Washington College of Law’s scholarly publication dedicated to diversity and the law. TMA is a student-run publication founded in 2004. The Modern American?is a name that conveys the nation’s evolution as an increasingly diverse and complex place that is experiencing tremendous change, both exciting and frightening, in the era of twenty-first century politics. 

Our mission is to provide a forum for frank, yet beneficial discussion of the law’s treatment of marginalized and under-represented people in America. We publish articles with cutting-edge analysis of timely legal, social, and political issues affecting marginalized people and their communities. Our goal is to feature a spectrum of viewpoints in articles written by students, legal scholars, activists, and practitioners from all over the country.
