Law Reviews and Journals

Charleston Law Review

The Charleston Law Review is an independent organization composed entirely of second and third year students at the Charleston School of Law. In order to gain membership on the Charleston Law Review, students must compete in a writing competition that begins after the conclusion of spring semester finals. After completion of the writing competition, offers for membership are made to students based on a combination of grades and the scored writing piece.

 The Charleston Law Review's primary objective is to foster the knowledge and insight of students, practitioners, scholars, and the judiciary through a traditional forum dedicated to augmenting the pursuit of innovative legal expression, composition, and scholarship. Members of the Charleston Law Review contribute to this objective by editing articles, writing notes, and actively participating in all aspects of the publication process.  This participation enables members of the Charleston Law Review to develop invaluable analytical skills and receive extensive writing and editing experience.

MALABU

MALABU is Charleston School of Law’s Maritime Law Bulletin.  With the historic port city of Charleston as a backdrop, MALABU brings timely and useful maritime-focused articles to practicing attorneys, law professors, students, and those in the maritime field. MALABU is run by a board of law students, and faculty advisors with special interests in admiralty, with generous support from the Charleston Maritime Association. 

Resolved: Journal of Alternative Dispute Resolution 

Resolved: Journal of Alternative Dispute Resolution operates under Charleston School of Law’s Center for Dispute Resolution.  Resolved publishes articles focused on the practical issues facing mediators, arbitrators, attorneys, and human resources professionals engaged in the implementation and supervision of dispute resolution programs and is one of only two law journals in the Southeast dedicated to these issues.

Resolved’s main objective is to promote research and writing in the areas of dispute resolution theory, skills, techniques and application. Resolved members are selected based on a combination of their grades and performance on a writing competition upon completion of all first year required courses.  Members are involved in editing articles, writing articles, and all aspects of the publication process.  Resolved members also host an annual Symposium dedicated to topical issues involving ADR.  Because Resolved fosters an analytical approach to ADR, Resolved members gain invaluable exposure to ADR skill sets as well as extensive writing and editing experience.
