The Journal was first published in 1985 by a group of law review
students who wanted the opportunity to publish their own
pieces. Today, the Journal provides lawyers as well as
non-lawyers analysis and insight into various areas of social and
legal significance. The Journal provides a forum for
cutting-edge contemporary and historical topics through articles
and essays by distinguished professors and scholars, as well as
student-written notes and comments.
In an equally important capacity, the Journal affords students
the opportunity to develop advanced legal writing, researching and
analytical skills beyond that which they may otherwise encounter in
law school. Each year the Journal publishes three issues and
conducts an on-campus symposium featuring some of the most
prominent and respected scholars within a particular field.
