Washington University Journal of Law and Policy

washington university journal of law and policy The Journal of Law and Policy is committed to generating a symposium-based publication that brings together communities of scholars, through a mutual and collaborative student and faculty process, emphasizing existing and emerging visions of the law in relation to interdisciplinary and multicultural perspectives, the implications of technology, and the consequences of economic globalization for the purpose of influencing law and social policy.

Mission Statement:

This publication originated in 1968 as the Urban Law Annual and focused entirely on issues surrounding land use, urban development, and other legal concerns of urban communities. The scope broadened in1983 when the Journal expanded (and became the Journal of Urban and Contemporary Law) to encompass a broad range of topics while still emphasizing urban and land-use law. In 1999, the staff and its advisors began a lengthy process of reevaluating the Journal’s role in the advancement of legal scholarship. As a result of this process, the Journal once again broadened its scope to become the Washington University Journal of Law & Policy. 

The Journal is committed to generating a symposium-based publication that brings together communities of scholars, through a mutual and collaborative student and faculty process, emphasizing existing and emerging visions of the law in relation to interdisciplinary and multicultural perspectives, the implications of technology, and the consequences of economic globalization for the purpose of influencing law and social policy.

In furtherance of this mission, the Journal, unlike most law reviews, centers each volume around a pertinent theme or issue. The articles therein are authored by professors of law, legal practitioners, judges, and distinguished scholars from a variety of academic disciplines. Each year, the Journal publishes an “Access to Justice” volume. This volume is a compilation of essays from the Washington University School of Law’s “Access to Justice” speaker series, one goal of which is to encourage and challenge audiences to use their legal education for the ultimate betterment of our society. Additionally, the Journal collaborates with faculty members to publish symposia along a broad spectrum of contemporary topics.

Washington University Jurisprudence Review is the only student-edited, in-print journal of jurisprudence in the United States. The Jurisprudence Review promotes academic discussion and scholarship at the nexus of law and legal theory by publishing works that contribute to analytic, normative, and comparative jurisprudence from scholars both within and without the legal academy. We also seek to enrich the law school experience by fostering critical analysis of the suppositions and theories that underpin the law school curriculum.

Articles published in the Washington University Jurisprudence Review are available on this website, on Westlaw, and on HeinOnline.

When citing to material from the Washington University Jurisprudence Review, the following citation style should be used: __ Wash. U. Jur. Rev. __.

Article Selection Process

The Articles Team screens submissions to the Jurisprudence Review and works with authors through the revision and publication process. After ensuring selected scholarship is concerned with the topic of jurisprudence, we engage in a rigorous editorial dialogue with the author to strive to produce the highest quality jurisprudential scholarship while emphasizing the importance of publishing a wide range of voices from diverse backgrounds and legal expertise.

Diversity & Inclusion

At the Jurisprudence Review at Washington University School of Law, diversity and inclusion are essential to both the quality of our publications and the development of our legal scholars. We are dedicated to the recruitment and development of student scholars with diverse backgrounds, lifestyles, and experiences. We are equally committed to the promotion and publication of institutional authors, regardless of race, nationality, religion, gender identification, sexual orientation, or political ideology. The result is an exceptional team of legal scholars committed to publishing groundbreaking and thought-provoking jurisprudential works at the Washington University School of Law.
