Kelley professor named editor-in-chief of prestigious law journal

Julie Manning Magid, professor of business law at the Kelley School of Business on the IUPUI campus, has been named editor-in-chief of the American Business Law Journal, the discipline’s most prestigious peer-reviewed publication.

The American Business Law Journal is a quarterly, highly selective journal publishing manuscripts that analyze legal and ethical issues affecting business across the globe. The journal, published by the Academy of Legal Studies in Business, selects top quality articles that make a significant scholarly contribution to the field of business law. Editors receive hundreds of submissions a year but accept just 12 to 16 for publication.

Magid has served as a reviewer for the journal since 2003, and in that time, she has been a member of the Editorial Board and has been recognized for outstanding contributions as a reviewer and an article author.

“It is an honor and a privilege to serve alongside other business law and legal studies faculty in this capacity,” said Magid. “In this role, I have the opportunity to bring outstanding legal scholarship to print through an interactive peer review process. There are emerging legal topics in business law: from blockchain, to the implications of the cybersecurity, as well as ongoing inquiry in areas from  constitutional to international law, and all of it has an impact on business environments. It’s imperative for our scholars to make their valuable work available to others.”

It is an honor to work with a colleague with such an exquisite international reputation who shares her expertise not only with the profession, but also with our students and the community.
