As the flagship legal journal in the state of Alabama, the Alabama Law Review is a nationally recognized journal.

Each year, the Alabama Law Review publishes contributions from leading scholars as well as selected works from its own members. The editors are tasked with carefully analyzing these articles and preparing them for publication in each of the four issues the journal publishes each year. As a light-edit journal, the Alabama Law Review seeks to preserve the integrity of author contributions while also guaranteeing accurate and useful citations that can provide helpful commentary and guidance to academics, the state bar, and the broader intellectual community.

Now in its seventy-fifth volume, the Alabama Law Review is building on a rich tradition of scholarship aimed at exploring issues of national as well as local significance to scholars, legislators, jurists, and practitioners.
