Denver University Law Review Membership Selection Policies

Who is Eligible?

Membership to the Denver University Law Review is limited to law students selected by the Law Review through a process that places heavy emphasis on scholarship through highly developed bluebook and editing skills, as well as demonstrated ability for strong writing and legal analysis. Law students interested in joining must participate in a write-on competition at the end of their first year. 

The Law Review strongly encourages all eligible law students to consider becoming a part of the Law Review. Candidacy will be open to all first-year day and evening students, as well as second-year evening and dual-degree students provided they have not previously completed the Law Review candidacy. This will be the only opportunity for first-year day students to join the Law Review. Students may ONLY attempt the candidacy process once. Downloading the packet constitutes an attempt.

Time Commitment

All Candidates who accept membership to the Denver University Law Review must serve a two-year commitment. Law Review editors are required to write a comment on a Tenth Circuit case during their 2L year (the editor may opt to use this piece for the Upper Level Writing requirement). 2L editors and 3L editors are required to assist with cite and source responsibilities throughout the year. Editors may take up to 6 credits of their out of class credits for Law Review duties.

Candidacy Requirements

Candidacy Packets must be downloaded from TWEN. Follow the directions and deadlines in the Candidacy Packets. More information on candidacy dates is coming soon.

Selection Process

The candidacy team will assign one grade to the bluebook/edit and one to the case comment. The grades will be added together resulting in one score for each candidate. The candidacy team will balance the two documents (Bluebook section and comment) to determine who is most eligible. Those candidates with the highest score will be invited to join. The candidacy team expects to notify students selected for the Law Review by the end of July, in advance of the mandatory all-day training session held the first week of classes.

Why should you join?

The Denver University Law Review invites all eligible students to apply for candidacy and become a part of its tradition! The Denver University Law Review is the flagship and oldest, student-run journal at the Sturm College of Law.
