Columbia Law Review
History and Background
The Columbia Law Review is a leader in legal scholarship in the United States and around the world. The Review is an independent nonprofit corporation edited and published entirely by students at Columbia Law School. It was founded in 1901 by Joseph E. Corrigan and John M. Woolsey, who served as the Review's first editor-in-chief and secretary, and celebrated the publication of its 100th volume in 2001.
The Columbia Law Review is one of a handful of student-edited law journals in the nation that publish eight issues per year. The Review is the third most widely distributed and cited law review in the country, after the Harvard Law Review and the Yale Law Journal. The Review receives about 1,500 submissions per year and selects approximately 25 manuscripts for publication. In addition to articles, the Review regularly publishes scholarly essays and student notes.
The Columbia Law Review is one of the four law review organizations that publishes the Bluebook.
