Journal of the Legal Profession

About the Journal

The Journal of the Legal Profession was the nation’s first periodical exploring legal ethics and problems confronting the profession. For over thirty years, essays by distinguished judges, attorneys, and legal scholars have constituted the Journal of the Legal Profession’s main text.

The student staff, selected from the top 25% of students after their first year in law school, conducts research and writes commentary on cases raising questions of professional ethics. The publication provides students a unique opportunity to examine the legal community from an ethics perspective and to present their findings and opinions to an international readership.
