Journal/Law Review Membership
Students who have been granted membership to one of the four law school legal publications may receive academic credit for their work. Students must consult the by-laws of each separate publication for the requirements for these credits. Students may allocate their legal editorship credits to any semester subject to the approval of the editor in chief and the journal advisor provided they are not allocated before any work has begun. The maximum number of credits that can be awarded is 2; these appear on the transcript as Legal Editorship.
Work undertaken for a legal publication may be used to satisfy the upperclass writing requirement. The work must go through multiple drafts, be of high quality and approved by a faculty member as meeting this requirement. Work for a journal does not automatically satisfy the upperclass writing requirement. Many students wishing to receive upperclass writing requirement credit for their journal work will do so by completing a special research project (which may not be greater than 2 credits) based on their journal research.
All legal editorship credits are subject to standard tuition and fees.
