Finding Law Review Articles

What Are Law Review Articles?

"A law review or journal is usually a student run publication based at a law school, which regularly publishes issues filled with articles on a variety of legal topics."

"Most of the articles are written by law professors, practicing lawyers, or judges. Some articles, usually designated as a note or comment, are authored by law students. Law reviews may be entitled for the name of the school at which it is based (e.g., Texas Law Review) or may have a title that reflects its specialized focus (e.g., Texas Environmental Law Journal)."
