Students at the University of Washington School of Law have the opportunity to join Washington Law Review upon completion of their first year of law school or during the winter quarter of their second year. Membership is competitive and based on academic performance and writing competency.
Candidates for membership serve on Law Review for two academic years. In their first year, candidates edit and review material for publication, and also write a full-length piece of legal scholarship. In their second year, candidates serve in one of Washington Law Review‘s five departments—Office of the Editor-in-Chief, Articles, Notes & Comments, Online, and Office of the Managing Editor—as either an editor or as a member of Law Review‘s Editorial Board.
