Charleston Law Review – About

The Charleston Law Review is an independent organization composed entirely of upper-level students at the Charleston School of Law. In order to gain membership on the Charleston Law Review, first year students must compete in a writing competition that begins after spring semester finals have concluded. The Charleston Law Review then makes membership offers to students based on a combination of grades and the scored writing piece. The Charleston Law Review recruits the best and brightest students from the Charleston School of Law and therefore will not consider anyone with a GPA lower than a 3.0.

Transfer students who wish to become members of the Charleston Law Review must complete the spring writing competition immediately following spring finals, whether they have arrived on campus or not. Only those who are transferring immediately after completing their first year or transferred after their first semester in law school are eligible to try out for the Charleston Law Review. Any questions regarding the qualifications of law review members or the writing competition can be answered by emailing the Law Review.

The 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 Law Review contribute to this objective by editing articles, writing notes, and actively participating all aspects of the publication process.

By participating in the publication process, members of the Charleston Law Review receive invaluable analytical skills and extensive legal writing and editing experience.
