University of Cincinnati Law Review
The University of Cincinnati Law Review is a quarterly publication produced by second and third-year law students. The Law Review, along with its counterparts at all other accredited law schools, makes a significant contribution to scholarly legal literature. In addition, the Law Review represents the College of Law to the outside community. Each year, approximately 30 students are invited to join the Law Review as Associate Members. All Associate Members are chosen on the basis of a writing competition score combined with first year grade point average combined with a writing competition score. Students are initially eligible to apply after their first year ends. Transfer students, dual-degree students, and Flex-Time students are also eligible. The competition begins immediately after completion of first year studiesthe spring semester.
The Law Review publishes legal scholarship in our quarterly traditional publication, and on our Blog. Each Associate Member is expected to write twice on one of three tracks during the second year. Traditional track Associate Members write two long-form articles—one in each semester. These articles discuss recent court decisions by putting the holding of the case in broader legal perspective or analyze a recent trend in a specific area of law. Blog track members also discuss recent court decisions and explore legal issues each semester, and so by way of writing multiple short-form articles. Hybrid track members write one long-form article one semester, and multiple short-form articles the other semester.
After their year serving as Associate Members, a minimum of 22 members are chosen to serve as editors. Editors approve writing topics, edit student casenotes and comments, select articles by eminent scholars, and perform all tasks related to editing, printing and publishing the journal. All members receive credits that apply toward graduation requirements. Associate Members who complete all requirements receive two credit hours for each semester. Editors receive two or three credit hours per semester, depending upon their position.
At the end of their year serving as Associate Members, members also have the option to write an editorial note the following year as a Contributing Member. Contributing Members receive one credit hour per semester.
Participation provides a widely recognized opportunity that cannot be found in any other writing program offered by the College. Participation on the Law Review requires a fairly intensive commitment of time and energy; however, the rewards are substantial.
