Publication date:


The Modern American is American University Washington College of Law's student-run publication dedicated to diversity and the law. This publication analyzes the legal system's treatment of racial, sexual, ethnic, and other underrepresented people. We intend to present an analysis of the current social and legal remedies for minority issues. Our philosophy is to present a balanced perspective and encourage all viewpoints regardless of political or social leaning.
The Modern American is not just limited to legal issues, therefore we include other relevant information to educate the interested reader, such as an examination of upcoming legislation, upcoming books or movies relevant to the minority community, and/or a spotlight on interesting people who are heading legal and social change in the United States.
