The yale law journal
The Journal is led by eight Officers and is guided by a Board of Directors composed of alumni, faculty, and Yale Law School representatives. The Journal selects editors, usually after the spring of their first year of law school, in a process that typically includes assessment of source and citation skills in addition to skills at analyzing legal scholarship. Students may also be offered admission if they write a Note that is accepted for publication in the Journal. If you have any questions, please contact Executive Development Editor James Anglin Flynn.
Stanford LAw Review
The Stanford Law Review was organized in 1948 (see Warren Christopher s 1948 President s Page from Volume 1 of the Review). Each year the Law Review publishes one volume, comprised of six separate issues. Each issue contains material written by student members of the Law Review, other Stanford law students, and outside contributors, such as law professors, judges, and practicing lawyers. Beginning in 2011, the Stanford Law Review Online supplements the Law Review s print editions by publishing short, accessible, and timely pieces of legal scholarship on this website (see Introducing the Stanford Law Review Online).
The Law Review has two principal functions: to educate and foster intellectual discourse among the student membership, and to contribute to legal scholarship by addressing important legal and social issues. Law Review participants select, edit, and publish articles and notes on the cutting edge of legal scholarship. Through these activities, they develop important research, editorial, administrative, and teaching skills. Editors are trained to critically and comprehensively evaluate submissions. Through a team-editing process, they address the work s analysis, writing style, research, organization, and accuracy. In addition, student authors who submit notes for publication receive extensive editorial assistance that helps them write more clearly and persuasively.
