Benefits of Membership
Students benefit in many ways by serving as members of the Washington Law Review. Second-year students improve their legal
writing by writing a publishable-quality student comment. Third-year students develop stronger critical-reading skills as they help professional and student authors make their arguments as clearly and persuasively as possible. Third-year students who serve on the Law Review’s Executive Board also grow into stronger leaders, capable of keeping their highly motivated peers working as a team.
Become a Member
The Law Review sponsors an annual writing competition for students ending their first of law school. Twenty-four
students receive invitations to become members. Students may also become members by writing a Comment during their second year of law school. (See Rules)
