Law Review Applications Due May 14

Law Review applications are due Monday, May 14 by 9:00 p.m. Please review the application instructions carefully before submitting. Remember that all applicants, regardless of whether submitting their write-on prompts physically or electronically, must submit a signed, physical copy of the Grade Release Form directly to the Law Review. These forms should be placed in the manila envelope labeled "Release Forms" outside of the Law Review office, Room 238. Good luck to all those applying! If you have questions about the application process, please contact Spencer Brooks at Sjbroo02@louisville.edu.

Law Review Grade Release Forms

All students planning on applying for membership on the University of Louisville Law Review must turn in their completed and signed grade release form by placing it in the manila envelope marked “Release Forms” located outside the Law Review office (Room 238). Do not submit your forms to Ms. Thompson directly. Please remember that all applicants, whether submitting their application physically or electronically, must submit a physical copy of the release form by the May 14 deadline.

Law Review Membership Application Revised

In order to better accommodate students who will be leaving Louisville immediately after the end of finals, the Law Review will now accept write-on essays submitted solely via TWEN. The old instructions for law review application submission are unchanged, but if you're going to be out of town and would like to submit your essay electronically you may now do so by following the revised instructions attached to this post.

 

If you have any questions, please contact Spencer Brooks at Sjbroo02@louisville.edu. 

 

Thanks, and good luck on your finals!

Law Review Membership Applications May Now Be Submitted

Applications for membership on the University of Louisville Law Review, Volume 51, are now being accepted. They are due no later than 9:00 p.m. on May 14th. Any students who plan on attending classes through spring 2013 are highly encouraged to apply. Membership on a journal is excellent for developing your research and writing skills, and a school's law review is generally regarded as its premier publication. First-year members get two hours of academic credit. They also write a note that fulfills their writing requirement for graduation and has the potential to be published in the Law Review.
