About Jurisprudence Review

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.

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 in St. Louis School of Law.
