The Boston College Law Review (Bluebook abbreviation: B.C. L. Rev.) is an academic journal of legal scholarship and student organization at Boston College Law School. It was established in 1959. Until 1977, it was known as the Boston College Industrial & Commercial Law Review. Among student-edited general-interest law reviews, it is currently ranked 25th in the Washington and Lee School of Law Law Journal Rankings.[1]

The journal publishes five issues each year. Each issue typically includes four or five articles concerning legal issues of national interest written by outside authors, as well as several student-written notes. The journal has published articles on such wide-ranging topics as the legal issues involved in managing the lives of ex-offenders, the compensation of fund managers in the mutual fund industry, and the contributions of interdisciplinary evidence scholarship. The journal also hosts an annual symposium. In addition, the review publishes an electronic supplement, which consists of student-written comments on recent federal circuit court decisions.[2]

The journal is staffed by second- and third-year law students. Approximately eighty staff positions are filled by students who either attain the top five grades in each first-year section, who score highest in the first-year writing competition, or a combination of these two criteria.[3] The editor-in-chief is Jennie Davis Wilusz.
