Why should you join?

The Denver Law Review invites all eligible students to apply for candidacy and become a part of its long and outstanding tradition. 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.

Skills: By joining the Denver Law Review, you will learn how to edit and improve articles submitted by professors, judges, and practitioners across the nation.

People: Membership affords you opportunities to get to know faculty, Law Review alumni, and high-achieving fellow students. Law Review is a great way to begin to develop a close-knit network of future lawyers in the Colorado legal community.

Resume: Having the Law Review as a credential is extremely beneficial when seeking employment or clerkships. Similarly, the Law Review gives you four opportunities to be published as a student.

  • 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.
