WFU law school begins online journal
Wake Forest University School of Law students and faculty have created an online graduate school journal that explores the growing field of bioethics, WFU said in a statement.
“Awaken: The Creative Journal of Contemporary Bioethics” is dedicated to exploring and understanding the field of bioethics through the publication of creative, fictionalized short stories. The stories published in “Awaken” utilize the creative literary process to discover and expound upon contemporary bioethics issues, its founders say.
The journal website “Awaken” was rolled out to the public last Wednesday under the direction of Law Professor of Legal Writing Christine Nero Coughlin, a law professor of legal writing, WFU said..
