University of Louisville Law Review to Accept Applications for Membership

The University of Louisville Law Review will soon begin accepting applications for membership from rising 2Ls and 3Ls.  The University of Louisville Law Review is the principal publication at the University of Louisville, Brandeis School of Law. The Law Review has recently achieved the highest ranking in its history, placing in the top 18% of all ranked U.S. journals. This success is a direct result of the hard work and dedication of the Law Review’s student members. We hope that you apply for the opportunity to contribute to our mission of impactful scholarship.

Members can expect to attain academic credit, an opportunity to complete the Law School’s writing requirement, and a chance to obtain marketable skills and academic distinction sought by employers.

Applications will be released on May 1, 2015, at 5:00 p.m. Upon release, interested students may take a physical copy of the Volume 54 Membership Application, a stack of which will be located outside the Law Review Office (Room 238), or may access an electronic copy on TWEN.
