What is a Law Review Article and Why Look for Articles in Law Reviews?
A law review is a journal published by a law school and contains student written case summaries along with scholarly articles from legal professionals including law professors, lawyers, and judges. The articles contained in law reviews will reference current issues related to the law, decisions from cases as well as current legislation. They are a good source of scholarly content for timely legal issues.
