Prospective Members

How do I join?

Every spring semester, 1Ls may compete for a spot on Journal. Every fall semester, transfer students have the opportunity to compete in a transfer competition. Please click here for more information regarding the write-on competition.

Why the Journal?

The Journal publishes articles by noted legal scholars. Recent examples include Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Erwin Chemerinsky, and Ralph Nader. As a member of the Journal, you will have the opportunity to edit work of this caliber. Moreover, as a symposium-based law review, the Journal sponsors a conference in conjunction with most volumes. As such, you might have an opportunity to meet and interact with our authors prior to editing their work.

Additionally, all members of the Journal have the opportunity to write a note on a topic of their choosing. The Journal has an extensive mentoring program to help each member produce a paper of publishable quality.

Though the Journal is committed to publishing a quality product, it makes a conscious effort to foster camaraderie and have a good time in the process. 

If you have further questions, please contact the publications office.  If you would like a complimentary copy of the Journal, stop by the Journal office in Seigle Hall, room 213.

We truly hope that you choose to join the Journal.
