About the Law Review

Founded in 1967, the Valparaiso University Law Review is one of the oldest Law Reviews in the Midwest. The Valparaiso Law Review is a scholarly journal that publishes articles, lectures, and book reviews submitted by law professors, judges, practitioners, and student notes submitted by members of the Law Review.

The Law Review is comprised solely of Valparaiso law students and publishes four issues each year. It affords qualified students an invaluable opportunity for training and precise analysis of legal problems and clear presentation of legal issues. In addition, the law review membership enhances a student’s legal research, writing, and analytical skills.
