The Wayne Law Review write-on competition starts May 9! Students interested in taking part in the competition will need to fill out an exam card in the Dean of Students Office and add the ‘Law Review Write On Competition’ course to their TWEN page. If you need additional information or have questions about the process please don’t hesitate to contact Chelsey Marsh at email@example.com.
On March 20 from 4:00 to 6:00 the Wayne Law Review will present The Law of the First Amendment: A Revisit Twenty-One Years Later, a Constitutional Scholars’ roundtable. Recognized as one of the foremost authorities on Constitutional and First Amendment Law, this event highlights an upcoming article in the Wayne Law Review written by Distinguished Professor of Law, Robert A. Sedler. Twenty years ago, Robert Sedler wrote an article published in the Washington & Lee Law Review, discussing the differences in approach among academia and litigation on The Law of the First Amendment. Anticipated discussion for the event will chronicle those concepts, principles, and doctrines originally explored and as updated in his new work.
Featured guest speakers include:
- The Honorable Avern L. Cohn Residing Federal Judge at the United States Court for the Eastern District of Michigan
- Kevin W. Saunders Professor of Law and The Charles Clarke Chair in Constitutional Law, Michigan State University College of Law, and
- Christopher C. Lund, Assistant Professor of Law, Wayne State University Law School, where his principal academic interest is in religious liberty.
Each of our guest speakers will offer his scholarly perspective to help frame the debate on The Law of the First Amendment.
On behalf of the Law Review I would like to congratulate the new members of the 2013-2014 Wayne Law Review Editorial Board. There were several qualified candidates, and the decision process was difficult. I am confident that these competent leaders will ensure a successful Law Review next year. Again, congratulations and best of luck next year!

The 2012-2013 Wayne Law Review Symposium: “Revisiting the American City: A National Survey of Urban Legal Frameworks”
The 2012-2013 Wayne Law Review Symposium: “Revisiting the American City: A National Survey of Urban Legal Frameworks” will be hosted on Friday, November 2 from 8:00am to 5:00pm.
Today, the United States is increasingly faced with a harsh reality – how can the City survive amid economic crisis, environmental concerns, suburban sprawl, and increasing inequity? The Wayne Law Review hopes to answer this and other pressing questions with its annual symposium. No location is more fitting than the City of Detroit, which will serve as our “experimental lab” for discussion, and we will explore solutions from across the nation and globe as to which urban legal frameworks can guide the survival of the city.
Speakers will include national leaders on urban policy and lawmaking, as well as Michigan’s own policymakers and trendsetters in urban development, community action, and land use planning.
