The Chicago-Kent Law Review began as the “Chicago Kent Review” in 1923. Published several times a year, the Chicago Kent Review was to be, as Judge Henry Horner wrote in 1923, “a messenger . . . to carry the note of fraternity among the students and alumni of Chicago-Kent.”
By the 1930s, the journal had adopted its current name and began publishing scholarly articles by law professors and practitioners. The Chicago-Kent Law Review has published well over three hundred issues featuring original works by important scholars in the field of law and beyond. A number of years ago, the Law Review adopted an all-symposium format.
The Law Review emphasizes developing its members’ scholarly legal writing through a comprehensive, one-year writing program. Each issue of the Law Review showcases several of the best student works.
