Aims & Scope
The Bridge: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Legal & Social Policy Journal (formerly the ECI Interdisciplinary Journal for Legal & Social Policy), is an open-access peer reviewed journal that delivers evidence-based research in the fields of legal and social policy. The Bridge provides research-driven articles to equip and empower all of those working in the legal and social policy space to impact policy and practice changes that address the diverse needs of urban populations. Launched in spring 2011, a primary goal of The Bridge is to further Texas Southern University's efforts to meet its charge to solve urban problems. Since its establishment, The Bridge has served as a unique repository of interdisciplinary articles that focus solely on legal and social policy issues nationwide that impact urban and minority communities.
ECI is a research center on policy issues for the Thurgood Marshall School of Law at Texas Southern University. The mission of the Institute is to empower underserved and disenfranchised communities by addressing systemic social issues through legal representation, research, education, and advocacy.
