The University of Kentucky College of Law journal Kentucky Journal of Equine, Agricultural, and Natural Resources Law (KJEANRL) was recently ranked one of the top 100 law journals of 2010 by the Washington and Lee University School of Law. This is a prestigious accomplishment, considering the list consists of 1,665 law journals. The journal ranked 94th on the list, as well as 34th on the list of specialized journals.

"This is the second consecutive year the journal has been listed, and we are only three years old, so it's a pretty good start," said Kyle Hermanson, third-year law student and journal editor. "It is important for us to get some national recognition and help us become the premier journal for natural resources law and agricultural law in the nation."

The KJEANRL is a multidisciplinary journal of law, science, and policy that is published twice annually by the UK College of Law. The journal includes articles by practitioners, academicians, policy-makers, and other professionals throughout the United States and abroad. It also includes original manuscripts focusing on the legal, policy, and ethical issues related to the environment, natural resources, land use, and energy. College of Law students are responsible for editing the entire journal, as well as adding notes and case comments to each issue.

"We would like to cast a wider net as we attempt to solicit articles from professionals nationwide," Hermanson said about his hopes for the journal's future. "We want to get a few more people outside of our region, and hopefully that will continue to increase the quality of the pieces we receive."

KJEANRL subscriptions are available for $20 per year. For more information about the journal and how to order, go to the journal's website at
