Law Review

The University of San Francisco Law Review is a student-run organization that publishes a journal of legal scholarship.

Since 1966, the Review has served as USF's voice in the ongoing academic debate regarding the evolution of law.

USF Law Review publishes three issues each year. Each issue is typically comprised of four articles by professors and practitioners and three student notes and/or comments. The Law Review Forum was introduced in 2014 as a new platform to bring legal academics, practitioners, and students together to discuss recent scholarship and current events impacting the legal community. All articles are subjected to a rigorous editorial process in order to strengthen substance, polish tone, and ensure citation accuracy. The Board of Editors makes all editorial and organizational decisions.

Subscriptions to the Review are held by judicial, municipal, and state libraries nationally and internationally. The Review is also available on Westlaw, Lexis, and Hein On-Line. In addition, we encourage our authors to publish drafts of their work on the Social Science Research Network. To submit to the journal, please visit USF Blogs for instructions.
