University of Cincinnati Law Review
The University of Cincinnati Law Review is a quarterly publication produced by second and third-year law students. The Review, along with its counterparts at all other accredited law schools, makes a significant contribution to scholarly legal literature. In addition, the 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 first year grade point average combined with a writing competition score. The competition begins immediately after completion of first year studies.
The Law Review publishes legal scholarship in our quarterly traditional publication, and on our weekly blog. Each Review 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 as reflected in recent cases. Blog track members write four short-form articles each semester with a similar focus. Hybrid track members write a long-form article one semester, and four short-form articles the other semester. At the end of the second year, Associate Members are given the option to write an editorial note during their third year, as a Contributing Member.
Eighteen second-year members are chosen to serve as editors of the Review during their third year of law school. Review editors approve writing topics, edit student casenotes and comments, select law articles by eminent scholars, and perform all tasks related to editing, printing and publishing the journal. Student writers and editors receive credits that apply towards College graduation requirements. Associate Members who complete all requirements receive two credit hours for each semester. Third-year editors may receive two or three credit hours per semester, depending upon their position. Third-year Contributing Members receive one credit hour per semester.
Review participation provides a widely recognized opportunity that cannot be found in any other writing program offered by the College. Participation on the Review requires a fairly intensive commitment of time and energy; however, the rewards are substantial.
