Julie Manning Magid has been named editor-in-chief of the American Business Law Journal, the discipline’s most prestigious peer-reviewed publication. She is professor of business law at the Kelley School of Business on the IUPUI campus.

The American Business Law Journal is a quarterly, highly selective journal publishing manuscripts that analyze legal and ethical issues affecting business across the globe. The journal, published by the Academy of Legal Studies in Business, selects top quality articles that make a significant scholarly contribution to the field of business law. Editors receive hundreds of submissions a year but accept just 12 to 16 for publication.

Magid has served as a reviewer for the journal since 2003, and in that time, she has been a member of the Editorial Board and has been recognized for her contributions as a reviewer and an article author.

In addition to her research and teaching, Magid serves as executive and academic director of the Tobias Leadership Center, which offers leadership programming, research, and collaboration for professionals across all sectors.

She holds a JD from the University of Michigan, and she practiced law in both Columbus, Ohio and Indianapolis before becoming a full-time professor at the Kelley School.

Magid’s scholarly work considers employment law and women in the workplace, making an impact on women, workers, managers and businesses. She also studies workplace culture, including innovation, diversity and inclusion, employment contracts and restrictive covenants and privacy and ethics.
