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 forty years, essays by distinguished judges, attorneys, and legal scholars have constituted The Journal of the Legal Profession‘s main text.

The student staff, selected based on distinguished academic performance and a rigorous competitive process after their first year in law school, conduct research and write commentary on cases and current events 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.
