About Us

The City University of New York Law Review is a student-run publication devoted to producing public interest scholarship, engaging with the public interest bar, and fostering student excellence in writing, legal analysis, and research.

All students in good academic standing are eligible to apply, and selections are made on the basis of student writing, editing abilities, and personal statements. We always aim to achieve a staff that reflects the diversity of the law school’s student body.

The City University of New York Law Review is published twice-yearly, in Winter and Summer. The “Executive Articles” section is where authors can submit long, traditional law review pieces, the “Notes & Comments” portion is typically reserved for student publications, the “PIPS” section is designated for practitioners and attorney pieces, and the “Footnote Forum” is geared towards shorter, more timely articles that discuss current legal issues and trends and features articles published on a rolling basis throughout the year.

As of March 2016, the Law Review is now published in an all-digital format, to ensure readers are able to access legal scholarship on critical social justice issues in an efficient and modernway. Access the Law Review on Digital Commons.
