About This Journal

GLR cover image
Established in 1966, the Georgia Law Review is the flagship publication of the University of Georgia School of Law. Staffed entirely by second- and third-year law students, the Law Review is the school’s only general subject-matter publication. The journal publishes one volume annually, in four quarterly issues. The journal also hosts an annual Symposium and publishes an issue dedicated to an important, developing area of the law. Dedicated to publishing quality and timely legal scholarship for over fifty years, the Georgia Law Review publishes the work of renowned law professors, judges, and legal practitioners in addition to selected notes written by student members.

The mission of the Georgia Law Review addresses two principal goals. First, the journal provides superb legal education and training. The Georgia Law Review editors select, edit, and publish the works that appear within the pages of its volumes. Through this process, the Georgia Law Review editors develop and hone their research, writing, editorial, and leadership skills.

More importantly, however, the Georgia Law Review provides a forum for legal reform. In its inaugural issue, Dean Lindsey Cowen articulated the purpose of the journal: "seeking out the weak points in our law, developing appropriate recommendations for change, and advocating them persuasively in its pages.” The editors of the Georgia Law Review continually strive to fulfill this mission and to preserve the publication as a platform for legal reform.
