Founded in 1972, the Pepperdine Law Review is a scholarly law journal published by second and third-year law students at the Pepperdine University School of Law. In its forty-four years, it has been a resource for practitioners, law professors, and judges alike. Articles published in the review are routinely referenced in court opinions, including those penned by the Supreme Court of the United States.
Membership is recognized as both an honor and a unique educational experience. Offers are extended to the top ten percent of the first year class, conditioned upon successful completion of an editing assignment that tests grammar and citation skill. Additional offers are awarded to the best entries in Pepperdine’s annual write-on competition. Pepperdine Law Review staff edit articles written by professors, lawyers, judges, legislators, and other scholars. They also produce their own Comments or Notes on legal developments and significant cases. Each year, the review publishes the best of each in five issues. It also produces an Annual Volume, comprised of essays, book reviews, and other legal correspondence.
