Since 1948, University of Oklahoma College of Law has published the Oklahoma Law Review to serve the profession and the public with timely discussion of legal issues. The Review is published by a student editorial board, operating with the advice of faculty. The Review contains lead articles written by scholars and practitioners, as well as student notes and comments, and book reviews.
Students may earn membership through achieving a high academic standing or being selected through a writing competition. The criteria for each method are explained to first-year students in the Legal Writing and Research class. Members and editors develop invaluable skills in analyzing legal problems, marshaling authorities, and expressing themselves accurately and precisely. Students who serve on the Review earn academic credit for their work.
