The McGeorge Law Review is excited to announce the publication of Volume 45, Issue 3, better known as "Greensheets." This issue covers legislation that came into effect in 2014.

The current issue contains nineteen different laws that cover topics from industrial hemp and off-reservation Indian gaming to the expansion of employment and housing laws to veterans and the limitation of workers compensation for professional athletes. Each article provides background on the specific area of law and in-depth analysis of the effectiveness of the new law.

Copies of the McGeorge Law Review "Greensheets" issue are available in the Student Center and Legal Studies Center. Later this year the articles will be available on a new website about California law, politics and policy,
