Founded in 1948, the Oklahoma Law Review is published quarterly by University of Oklahoma College of Law to serve the profession and the public with timely discussions of state and federal legal issues. OLR’s editorial board and membership are composed of law students, who work in consultation with a faculty advisor. Each issue of the Review contains articles written by scholars and practitioners, as well as comments and notes authored by journal editors and members. OLR also publishes an annual symposium issue.
OU Law students gain admittance to OLR via high academic standing or by selection through an annual writing competition. First-year students are briefed on these two methods in the Legal Writing and Research class. Members develop invaluable skills in analyzing legal problems, marshaling authorities, and expressing themselves accurately and precisely. Academic credit is also earned for participation on OLR. Approximately fifty students take part in OLR each academic year.
The latest issue of the Oklahoma Law Review, vol. 69, no. 4 (Summer 2017), has been published and is available in PDF format at the Current Issue page.
OLR's annual symposium issue, vol. 70, no. 1 (Fall 2017) , is near completion and will be published later in September. The issue, titled "Confronting New Market Realities: Implications for Stockholder Rights to Vote, Sell, and Sue," features contributions from three panels of expert speakers from a variety of business backgrounds including members of Delaware’s bench and bar and legal academia. The issue features articles by: Afra Afsharipour, professor of law, UC Davis School of Law; Randall Thomas, John S.
