The Wayne Law Review is one of Wayne Law’s two student-published scholarly journals. The Law Review is published four times each year and contains articles, book reviews, transcripts, notes and comments by prominent academics, practitioners and students on timely legal topics. Issues include articles of general academic and professional interest authored by law professors and practicing attorneys, as well as comments written by student members. One issue each year highlights a topic of interest discussed at the Law Review’s annual symposium. Another issue features an annual survey of developments in Michigan law and is widely read by members of the Michigan legal community.

Students are invited to join the Wayne Law Review on the basis of high academic standing and a writing competition held each summer. Junior and senior members produce the publication under the direction of a senior administrative board. A faculty adviser oversees the general operation.
