What is a Law Review?

A law review is a scholarly journal focusing on legal issues. They are published by law schools and bar associations. At a law school, a law review is a student-run journal, however, articles may be written by law professors, judges and other legal professionals.

Non-scholarly publications, such as the New York Law Journal or The American Lawyer, are professional newspapers and news-magazines that cover the daily practice of law.
