The University of Alabama School of Law is home to four student-edited law journals that publish articles on important legal topics written by faculty and student authors. These journals — the Alabama Law Review, The Journal of the Legal Profession, the Law and Psychology Review, and the Alabama Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Law Review — provide students with the opportunity to perform thorough, scholarly research into a legal topic of their choosing while also editing and publishing articles written by prominent scholars in various fields.
Alabama Civil Rights & Civil Liberties Law Review
The Alabama Civil Rights & Civil Liberties Law Review is a new publication at the University of Alabama that seeks to examine civil rights and civil liberties issues through the thought and writing of leading 21st century civil rights advocates and scholars. Issues that the Law Review hopes to cover include: age, gender, and race discrimination, disability rights, fair housing, voting rights and others.
Alabama Law Review
The Alabama Law Review, founded in 1948, 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.
Journal of the Legal Profession
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.
Law & Psychology Review
The Law & Psychology Review addresses the interplay between the disciplines of law and psychology. Founded in 1975 by law students of the University of Alabama, the Law & Psychology Review was one of the first journals to combine the disciplines of law and the behavioral sciences.
