UCLA Law Review

Mission: The UCLA Law Review is published six times a year by the students of the UCLA School of Law and the Regents of the University of California. The Law Review is a completely student-run organization and all management, editorial, and publication control is vested in its members. The Law Review strives to publish articles of the highest academic quality, while also appealing to the general interests of practicing attorneys, legal scholars, law students, judges, and legislators.

The UCLA Law Review was founded in December 1953, a few years after the founding of the Law School at UCLA in 1949.

Membership on the Law Review is decided on the basis of a Write-on competition that first year students complete after their spring semester. Success leads to a year of service as a member of the Law Review's staff. The editorial board of the Law Review is then selected from the staff based on their diligence, attention to detail, demonstrated leadership abilities, and service to the Law Review during their staff year.
