The Virginia Law Review is a law review edited and published by students at University of Virginia School of Law. It was established on March 15, 1913, and permanently organized later that year.[1] The stated objective of the Virginia Law Review is "to publish a professional periodical devoted to law-related issues that can be of use to judges, practitioners, teachers, legislators, students, and others interested in the law."[1] In addition to articles, the journal regularly publishes scholarly essays and student notes. A companion online publication, Virginia Law Review Online (formerly In Brief), has been in publication since 2007. The current editor-in-chief is Daniel Richardson (2017–2018).

The Virginia Law Review consistently ranks among the top ten most cited law journals.[2] In addition, it is accessible on electronic databases such as Westlaw, LexisNexis, and HeinOnline.
