The American University Law Review is both the oldest and the largest
journal at the Washington College of Law at the American University. For
more than forty-five years, The Law Review has made valuable contributions
to both the law school and the larger legal community. Each year, The Law
Review's approximately one hundred student team publishes six books that
are distributed nationwide and abroad to law school libraries, private law
firms, and individual subscribers. The Law Review is also available on
both Westlaw® and Lexis®.
The range of Articles The Law Review publishes are not limited to one
particular area of law. In recent years, Articles in The Law Review have
addressed a broad range of topics, including health care issues,
environmental law, land rights in Israel, voting rights in North Carolina,
securities law, habeas corpus cases, and many others. Also, The Law Review
is the only journal in the nation to publish annually an issue dedicated
to decisions of the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals regarding patent law,
international trade, government contracts, and Native American law. The
Law Review is particularly proud of sponsoring symposia and other special
projects. Some of The Law Review's most recent projects have concerned a
symposium on the future of electronic cash, a conference on the death
penalty, and the Rehnquist Court's jurisprudence on race.
The Law Review receives dozens of articles per week from outside authors
including judges, professors, And practitioners, and also considers its
members' papers for publication. Student-written Notes and Comments
discussing cutting-edge legal issues are published in each issue.
This online version of The Law Review debuted with Issue 1 of Volume 45.
As the global community moves into the 21st century, so too does The Law
Review. To this end, we publish concurrently both in traditional paper
form and on the World Wide Web.
American University Law Review is available free of charge as an Open
Access journal on the Internet.
