In addition, the Review trains its members in intensive legal research, analysis, and writing, thereby preparing them for the rigors of legal practice and public service. Every member of the Review shares the all-important work of criticizing, reconstructing, and polishing each piece until it is ready for publication. Each member of the Review must also author their own note or comment on a topic of their choice.
As a supplement to the routine daily classwork of Shepard Broad College of Law, the Review affords second and third-year students, a means of intensive training in legal writing. One of the most enriching experiences of Review membership comes from fulfilling the College of Law’s writing requirement. To become a member of the Review, a student must write an article of publishable quality, in addition to other requirements not set forth herein. The process of researching, writing, and rewriting an article is a unique educational experience. By composing an article, each member of the Review comes to appreciate the special value of revising his or her own submission, as well as working closely with fellow students to achieve one common goal.
