Writing is at the heart of the legal profession. Cincinnati Law’s prestigious law journals enable students to publish and edit the work of important national and international legal scholars.
Established in 1927, the University of Cincinnati Law Review is one of the oldest and most respected legal journals in the country. Each volume is edited by 30 law students chosen each year on the basis of their grade point averages and writing ability. Second-year members write case notes on the impact of recent court decisions. Third-year students write in-depth editorial notes and oversee the UCLaw Review Blog.
