On behalf of the Editorial Board, we are proud to present the Spring 2023 edition of the Juris Mentem Law Review. We had the pleasure of working with an amazing team of editors and writers who continue to exemplify our mission of providing students with the opportunity to pursue legal scholarship through our publication. We would also like to thank everyone who has helped to expand the journal to what it is today. Creating and maintaining an undergraduate law journal just before the start of a global pandemic has been difficult, but the dedicated efforts of our writers and editorial staff have allowed us to grow as a publication. 

A special thanks goes to the AU staff and our JM Editorial Staff who have put countless amounts of time and effort into the publication. It’s our pleasure to share with you a collection of reviewed articles that cover a wide range of legal issues and perspectives. We offer our greatest gratitude to the School of Public Affairs and the Department of Justice, Law, and Criminology for their guidance. 

Our writers have chosen to focus on not only the many of the large legal questions that will need to be addressed in the coming years but also on issues that are under-discussed and garner little attention through traditional media. The diverse collection of pieces this publication presents provides an opportunity for readers to learn about issues in a legal realm they may not have explored before. 

We at Juris Mentem hope to continue fostering critical thinking and legal scholarship through this publication and the ones to follow. We are proud to present a publication that not only showcases the legal excellence of our writers but also brings attention to a wide range of diverse legal issues.
