About This Journal

Founded in 1950, the Catholic University Law Review is the Columbus School of Law's oldest legal journal. Now in its 65th year of publication, the Law Review is a student run scholarly journal that examines problems of current legal concern. The Law Review publishes articles submitted by legal scholars and practitioners on a quarterly basis.  The Catholic University Law Review is respected in the legal community and its articles are often cited in judicial opinions, casebooks, treatises, and other legal journals. 

The Catholic University Law Review also regularly publishes Notes and Comments written by its student members. Each Staff Editor of the Law Review must complete a Note or Comment on a novel and current legal topic during his or her first semester of membership as part of the Journal’s writing program. The program requires Staff Editors to complete three drafts and to work closely with an expert reader. Upon completion, Staff Editors then have a choice of submitting their Notes or Comments for potential publication. Staff Editors may also satisfy one of their academic writing requirements through the Law Review’s writing program.
