Saint Louis University Law Journal

The Saint Louis University Law Journal is the oldest publication at Saint Louis University School of Law. Law students edit and produce the Journal, which the School of Law sponsors. Eminent scholars, judges, professors, practitioners and high-achieving law students author the articles for the Journal's four annual issues.

The Journal publishes four annual issues on a variety of legal topics. It is our goal to publish timely, pertinent and thought-provoking legal scholarship in every volume. Further, we seek to make publishing with the Journal a positive and enjoyable experience for the authors with whom we collaborate. Finally, it is our readers whom we endeavor to serve. Our readers are the final judge of quality, and the Journal seeks to improve in quality with each successive volume.

  • Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, United States Supreme Court
