Our Mission

Established in 1927, the Southern California Law Review is an independent and autonomous entity. Each year the Law Review publishes one volume, which is produced in six separate issues. Each issue normally contains several articles written by outside contributors and several notes written by students from the University of Southern California Gould School of Law. The Law Review strives to publish articles on a wide range of topics and to serve all segments of the legal community. In addition, the Law Review frequently hosts a forum in order to explore timely or controversial areas of law.

Matters of policy, procedure, and content are determined solely by the Editorial Board. All decision making authority is delegated by the Dean of the law school to the Editor-in-Chief. The Editor-in-Chief, in turn, delegates various responsibilities to the Editorial Board and the Law Review Staff.

Postscript is an online companion to the Southern California Law Review that permits us to publish a wider variety of worthwhile material than we can accommodate in our printed journal. We seek to publish a wide range of timely legal commentaries, response pieces, book reviews, and student work.
