UCLA Law Review

UCLA Law Review Logo

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.


UCLA Law Review, in partnership with BruinX, will present its annual symposium on February 8, 2019. The symposium, "Latinx Communities, Race, and the Criminal Justice System," will address how race, bias, and racism shape experiences and outcomes for Latinx communities in the criminal justice system.

The all-day event brings together scholars, lawyers, policymakers, and community organizers from across the country to examine these issues from a variety of disciplines and perspectives.

Please RSVP at https://bit.ly/2REuPy8 by February 1. Direct all inquiries to Kristen Green at lrsymposium@lawnet.ucla.edu
