Established in 1919, Washington Law Review is Washington State’s flagship legal publication, evolving from Washington State’s bar journal to a nationally ranked law review. Throughout its history, the Review has consistently produced and published meaningful scholarship, serving the legal academy and profession. Law Review has also provided second- and third-year law students with valuable practical experience that serves them well in their future careers. Members have gone on to serve as valued members of the legal profession and academy throughout the country.

Washington Law Review publishes four issues each year and regularly posts online features. It also hosts symposiums on timely and relevant issues of law; facilitates conversations with visiting legal scholars; and provides opportunities for University of Washington School of Law students to publish scholarship and contribute their original research to the larger legal conversation.

Washington Law Review is student-run and self-supporting.

Washington Law Review‘s archives may be found on its Digital Commons page.

Every year the incoming Board updates the Washington Law Review Style Guide. The current 2024 version can be found here.
