The New York Law School Law Review is a journal of legal scholarship edited and published by students at New York Law School four times a year. The Law Review is the largest law review in the United States, with 2010-2011 membership of 175 students, led by an editorial board assisted by staff editors, online staff editors, and members working together with a faculty publisher to make all editorial and publication decisions.
The Law Review has both a scholarly and an educational mission. It serves as an academic forum for legal scholarship, and is intended to provide effective research materials for judges, attorneys, and students of the law. The Law Review also offers its students an important learning experience, providing opportunities for members to develop their own editing and writing skills, as well as other critical skills that are relevant to successful law practice, including among others: communication, organizational, project management, and editing skills. Indeed, the Law Review’s educational purpose is as important as its scholarly purpose. Accordingly, each issue contains notes and comments written by students as well as contributions from outside authors.
The Law Review publishes articles, notes, comments, essays, book reviews, and speeches on many areas of legal scholarship, including constitutional law, criminal law, international law, corporate law, legal education, and legal history. All selected pieces are subjected to a rigorous editorial process designed to improve substance and form.
