Volume 12, Issue 2: Editors’ Note
This long-awaited issue of the Asian-Pacific Law & Policy Journal debuts along with our new and fully reconstructed website. Since May 2011, APL&PJ has commenced several ambitious initiatives to improve the operations and professionalism of the Journal, including building a new website, improving outreach to scholars and readers, and physically relocating into a new working environment. When APL&PJ was first established in 1999, the founding editors initially faced great resistance and skepticism, but despite the obstacles, succeeded in getting the journal up and running. Over the last twelve years, APL&PJ has grown by leaps and bounds, affording students an opportunity to work collaboratively, grow professionally, and support scholarship in an area that we are all passionate about. This year’s editorial staff feels that the time is ripe to move the Journal into a new phase of development. Over the next year, we will not only publish two more excellent issues of the Journal, but also enhance the improvement initiatives already underway . . .
