The Syracuse Law Review, established in 1952, is an intense legal research and writing program for student editors at Syracuse University College of Law and a national forum for legal scholars who contribute to it. The editorial board publishes four Law Review issues annually, one of which is the Annual Survey of New York Law.

Contributors to the Syracuse Law Review have included renowned scholars such as Erwin Chemerinsky, Owen Fiss, Akhil Reed Amar, Roscoe Pound, Richard Epstein, J. Edgar Hoover, and Ronald Rotunda. The Law Review also publishes six articles completed by student members during their first year of law review membership. In 2007, the Law Review hosted a distinguished panel of legal scholars and foreign policy experts for its annual Symposium, titled "A Nuclear Iran: The Legal Implications of a Preemptive National Security Strategy." The 59th Volume was recently cited by the Supreme Court of the United States in the Second Amendment case McDonald v. City of Chicago.

Current volume

As part of Volume 60, the Syracuse Law Review is publishing a Winter 2010 symposium book that includes nine prominent authors who consider the recent United States Supreme Court decision Caperton v. A.T. Massey Coal Co., the soundness of the majority and dissenting opinions, and the implication of the decision on judicial ethics. The symposium book will feature articles written by James Sample; James Bopp and Anita Woudenberg; Andrew Frey and Jeffrey Berger; Roy Schotland; Ronald D. Rotunda; Steven Lubet; Bruce Green; and Elizabeth Wydra.


Students are selected for Law Review membership based on academic ranking or success in an open writing competition held at the conclusion of the first year. All prospective members, including those who would be offered membership based on academic ranking, must successfully complete a form & accuracy examination, demonstrating the prospective members knowledge and comfort with the Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation. Members must demonstrate mastery of legal research and writing skills by submitting scholarly articles of publishable quality, of which 6 winning articles and 2 alternates are selected for publication in the following volume.
