Foreword: Celebrating Temple Law’s Dedication to Legal Excellence, Practical Education, and Public Service
By Kayla Martin [PDF]

As a tribute to Temple’s success in practical education and public service, Temple Law Review dedicates this Issue to highlighting a group of legal professionals whose perspectives are often underrepresented in law reviews: Pennsylvania practitioners. From fighting for fair elections to advocating for incarcerated youth during a global pandemic, these practitioners and their work demonstrate the importance of “real life lawyering.” This Issue also highlights the work of two esteemed professors, in honor of the legacy of the late Edward D. Ohlbaum and in recognition of the importance of centering legal scholarship on systemic issues like environmental injustice. In what follows, this Foreword introduces this Issue’s authors and their scholarship.
