The Administrative Law Review (Bluebook abbreviation: Admin. L. Rev.) was established in 1948 and is the official law journal of the American Bar Association Section of Administrative Law & Regulatory Practice.


The journal is a quarterly publication that is managed and edited by approximately 90 students at the Washington College of Law. The 2013–2014 editor-in-chief is Sara Lacy. The journal has been cited by the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit[1] (which is known as the administrative law circuit), and since 2000 has been cited by the Second,[2] Fourth,[3] Fifth,[4] Ninth,[5] and Tenth Circuit Courts of Appeal.[6] It was also cited by the Supreme Court of the United States.[7]


The Administrative Law Review selects staff members based on a competitive exercise that tests candidates on their editing skills, research skills, legal analysis skills, and legal writing ability. There is not a preset number of accepted candidates each year; recent classes of new editors have ranged from about 45 to 50. The candidate "write-on" exercise is distributed to candidates during their second semester at the law school. An optional "grade-on" process allows students to become staff members based solely on their grades. Transfer students are also eligible for admission through a fall write-on process.
