Alabama Law Review


Alabama Law Review

Publisher: University of Alabama Law School

The Alabama Law Review is published in four quarterly issues per volume and
is edited and managed solely by second- and third-year law students. The Law
Review serves three principal purposes.

- First, it is a unique opportunity for law students to cultivate and
complement their legal research and writing skills by editing the scholarly
work of academics and professionals and by writing their own
publishable-quality student comment.

- Secondly, the journal provides practitioners a valuable resource from
which to glean new insight into the ever-evolving body of law. Published
works generally focus on recent developments in the law and on other complex
legal issues.

- Thirdly, the Law Review serves as a conduit to the professional bar to
showcase our high caliber students and their work, in hopes of securing our
institution's reputation among the elite public law schools in the country.

For many practitioners, judges, and scholars, their first and only contact
with the School of Law comes via the Alabama Law Review. In fact, it is the
chief aim of the Law Review to be cited in legal briefs, court cases, and
scholarly works as reputable secondary authority by academics and
practitioners alike. For these and others, the Law Review is the school's
best and most influential tool for bringing prestige and recognition to the
University of Alabama. To this end, our journal has found some success, as
it is ranked among the 25 most cited legal journals.
