Oregon Law Review was founded in 1921 by the faculty at the University of Oregon School of Law. It is the oldest continuously published law journal in the Pacific Northwest and has been run by students since 1967.
Originally focused on Oregon law, the breadth of scholarship published by Oregon Law Review has expanded greatly over the years. Contributors to the Review have included scholars, practitioners, judges, and even Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. With each issue we publish, the Oregon Law Review staff seeks to advance legal scholarship with innovative, top-quality articles.
Now in its 98th year, the Review publishes two issues annually. Members of the Oregon Law Review staff are selected based on the results of a write-on competition open to first- and second-year students. In their first year on the Review, all members serve as Staff Editors. Managing Board members are elected each year by a vote of all members.
