The Law Review publishes five issues annually and hosts two symposiums. Through the publication of articles, notes, comments, and empirical legal studies, the Law Review provides the profession with timely evaluations of current problems in the law and serves students as a valuable educational tool.

Members of the Law Review learn valuable research, critical analysis and editing skills while exploring issues at a depth rarely found elsewhere in the law school experience. Each student member develops the ability to prepare an original work of scholarship apposite for publication.

The Law Review is entirely student-led, affording members a chance to work and cooperate with their peers to produce a professional journal that serves as a practical research tool for judges, lawyers and scholars.
