Students may receive offers to join the UDC Law Review staff by grading on and/or writing on.

Grading On

Students who have completed at least thirty hours of coursework and are in good standing, as defined by the UDC David A. Clarke School of Law Student Handbook, are eligible to grade on to the law review by exceeding a 3.2 GPA and receiving a “B” final grade in Lawyering Process I and II. Offers of membership to students who grade on are sent before the start of the Fall semester. Students who are eligible to grade on may also participate in the write-on competition, regardless of their expected or actual grades. No distinction is made within the Law Review staff between students who grade on and those who write on.

Writing On

Students who are not eligible to grade on, but who have completed at least thirty hours of coursework and are in good standing, as defined by the UDC David A. Clarke School of Law Student Handbook, may attempt to write on. Students typically have two weeks to complete the submission, which consists of a Bluebook exercise, an editing exercise, and a legal essay based on a closed-universe of cases and articles provided by the Law Review staff. The essays are graded anonymously and offers of membership to students who write on are sent before the start of the Fall semester.
