The Marquette Law Review is a quarterly law review edited by students at Marquette University Law School. The review is ranked 56th among general US student-edited journals for citations by courts.[1] Articles, essays, and student-written notes and comments from the review are accessible in PDF format on its web site, as well as online through LexisNexis, Westlaw, and HeinOnline.

Mission[edit]

The review was established in 1916 as a way for the law school to "make known its ideals and communicate its spirit."[2] It is the eighth-oldest law review in the nation.[3] Since its founding, the review has been dedicated to "the publication of not only theoretical articles of the law, but articles of real practical aid to the practitioner."[4] It has placed particular emphasis on legal issues in Wisconsin, which led former Wisconsin Chief Justice George R. Currie to "express on behalf of the members of our court appreciation to a Law Review from which we have so greatly benefited in performing our judicial labors."[5]

Staff[edit]

The review is produced by a staff of 50 student editors and members. Membership invitations are extended to students in the top ten percent of the 1L class. Alternatively, students may join the review by selection in a write-on competition held each summer. The editor-in-chief of Volume 100 is Sara C. McNamara.
