About Us

The University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law Law Review (UDC/DCSL L. Rev.) is a student-run periodical that publishes articles of topical legal interest. Past authors include members of the UDC-DCSL faculty, student members of the UDC Law Review, and legal professionals and scholars from around the country.

Our aspiration is to serve the community by raising awareness of important legal issues of social concern. Due to its unique position as the only public law school in the District, the UDC Law Review strives to address legal issues that actively affect the lives of District residents. In doing so, the UDC Law Review attempts to embody the theme of community activism and service that resonates in the law school’s mandatory clinical programs.

Students are eligible to join Law Review at the end of their full first or second years at UDC-DCSL, either based upon their grade average or by participating in a write-on competition. For more information, please contact a member of the Editorial Board.
