About This Journal

The Utah Law Review was founded in 1948 to serve the interests of law students, the bar, and the academy by publishing meaningful legal scholarship.

The Utah Law Review is an entirely student-published journal, helmed by second- and third-year law students from the University of Utah’s S. J. Quinney College of Law.

The Utah Law Review publishes five issues each year, creating one volume. Two of these issues are “general” issues featuring thought-provoking articles and notes on distinct topics. Two issues are themed: one curates environmentally-focused articles and notes, and the other centers on a topic of the Editorial Board’s choosing, such as social justice or health law.

Finally, one issue brings the year’s symposium to print with timely and engaging pieces.

The Utah Law Review is committed to two ends:

1. Publishing quality legal scholarship that is timely, relevant, bold, and poised to contribute new insights to the national legal discussion, and

2. Treating authors with respect and total commitment throughout the collaborative publication process.
