The Denver Law Review is the law school's flagship legal journal and the oldest, student-run journal at the Sturm College of Law. Membership on this historic and prestigious journal provides many benefits, both immediate and in the future.

  • We publish up to four student case comments from our Candidacy Period each year.
  • Our annual Tenth Circuit Survey, one of the four issues we produce each year, largely consists of student-written papers.
  • 3Ls have an opportunity to publish in conjunction with their directed research or upper-level writing requirement.
  • DLR Online provides additional opportunities for members to publish their legal scholarship.
