Law Review Publications

The Law Review publishes three issues throughout the academic year. The Winter issue is devoted to topics with a national focus. The Spring issue revolves around topics germane to the Rhode Island legal landscape, including a survey of new Rhode Island law, and includes student reviews of recent legislative enactments, as well as an analysis of significant Rhode Island Supreme Court opinions. As the only law review in the state, the Law Review is uniquely qualified to publish scholarship in this field. Additionally, each year the Law Review publishes an issue featuring articles from academic symposia at the Law School.
