UDC Student Law Journal

Introduced by the 2010-2011 UDC Law Review Editorial Board, the UDC Student Law Journal showcases the work of UDC-DCSL students. Students at UDC-DCSL write seminar papers for many of their elective courses throughout their tenure at UDC-DCSL.  In an effort to publish UDC-DCSL’s students work, the UDC Law Review has reached out to the professors of all of these elective courses and established a partnership that would allow the UDC Law Review to publish the work of some of the professor’s best students. Each year, professors nominate their top student’s paper to be submitted to the UDC Law Review for online publication in the UDC Student Law Journal and for presentation at the annual UDC Student Law Symposium. Click here for Student Symposium Video.
