About the Law Review

The Loyola Law Review is a student-produced and student-edited journal that was first established in 1920 as the Loyola Law Journal. A select group of students at Loyola University New Orleans College of Law make all editorial and organizational decisions to publish a journal of legal scholarship that is a useful tool to practitioners, academics, and students alike.

Each year, the Law Review publishes one volume of three issues consisting of articles by professors, judges and practitioners, as well as student pieces in the form of casenotes on recent court opinions and comments on a specific issue or area of law. The Loyola Law Review strives to guide legal discourse through a rigorous selection and editorial process and provide an opportunity for students to develop their own editing and writing skills.


Membership of the Loyola Law Review requires a two-year commitment: one year as a Candidate and one year as a Member.

Loyola Law Review selects candidates each summer from the rising 2L class. There are two ways to become a Candidate of the Loyola Law Review: (1) “grade on” by being in the top 10% of the 1L class after final grades post in the spring, or (2) “write on” by being in the top 20% of the 1L class and compete in the write-on competition held each summer. Write-on candidates write a casenote, a scholarly work that analyzes a recent and significant case to weigh its real or potential impact on a particular area of law. The Editorial Board then reviews all written submissions and extends invitations to join the Loyola Law Review. After completing 2L year as a Candidates, rising 3Ls are promoted to Members of the Review and have the opportunity to become an Editor on the Editorial Board.
