Kansas Law Review
The University of Kansas Law Review is a student-edited journal of legal scholarship published five times yearly. It publishes articles about all areas of law, but especially welcomes articles discussing state law issues, topics pertinent to the plains region, and legal ethics and legal advocacy skills. The Law Review publishes articles written by law professors, judges, and practicing attorneys. Each issue also contains legal notes or comments written by Law Review student editors. One issue in each volume exclusively treats issues of Kansas law. The Law Review annually hosts a symposium on a special topic of law and publishes scholarly written work submitted in conjunction with the symposium in a special issue.
Membership on the Kansas Law Review is determined based on KU Law students’ grades and performance in a writing competition held every spring. Members are eligible for academic credit for their service as staff members in their second year and as board members in their third year.
