The Wayne Law Review is Wayne Law’s primary scholarly journal. The Review is published four times each year and contains articles, book reviews, transcripts, notes, and comments by prominent academics, practitioners, and students on timely legal topics. Law students both fully operate the Review and are responsible for its content. Junior and senior Review members produce the publication under the direction of a senior administrative board. A faculty advisor oversees the general operation.
Review members receive two credits for each year of membership. To receive credit, students must work on the Law Review for at least one full year, but returning for a second year is strongly encouraged.
During their first year on the Review, members are required to write a publishable Note and complete weekly source-checking assignments. Students should expect to spend between 10 to 15 hours per week on the source-checking work. All student-written Notes are considered for publication in Review.
