    Thanks to Professor Colin Miller (South Carolina) for helping to get the word out!

  6. Dear Professor Birckhead,

    Please allow me to introduce myself briefly. I’m the publisher and editor-in-chief of The NewJurist.

    We’re a growing international online law magazine based in Austria. We currently enjoy a readership in 70 countries. Please visit our website at: newjurist.com

    I’ve read several of your articles on juvenile justice and was wondering if we can publish some of them in our magazine. I’m sure your articles will make very interesting reading and will enrich our publication.

    I look forward to hearing from you and thank you very much.

    Very truly yours,

    Dr M M. Elghusein
    Editor-in-Chief & Publisher
