CR-CL Podcast LogoThe Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review is the nation’s leading progressive law journal, and since 1966 has published innovative scholarship challenging legal practitioners and academics to work for greater justice and opportunity in our nation and around the world.  The journal launched to provide a more consistent forum for engagement with progressive legal scholarship and noteworthy legal developments.  At, we continue to develop novel ways to advocate for progressive legal positions and to draw attention to opportunities for positive change.

As part of this commitment to expanded access to thought-provoking progressive legal discussion, is proud to publish the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Podcast. The podcast will feature news, interviews, analysis and discussion around issues similar to those published in our print journal and covered on the blog.  Publishing a podcast will allow to improve the diversity of content with which visitors to can engage, and will provide a forum for a broader range of voices in the progressive legal community.  We hope to bring together students, professors, legal practitioners, and anyone else with insight into important legal developments.
