Established in 1927, the Southern California Law Review is an independent and autonomous entity. Each year the Law Review publishes one volume, which is produced in six separate issues. Each issue normally contains several articles written by outside contributors and several notes written by students from the University of Southern California Gould School of Law. The Law Review strives to publish articles on a wide range of topics and to serve all segments of the legal community. In addition, the Law Review frequently hosts a forum in order to explore timely or controversial areas of law.
