Founded in 1948, the Oklahoma Law Review is published quarterly by University of Oklahoma College of Law to serve the profession and the public with timely discussions of state and federal legal issues. OLR’s editorial board and membership are composed of law students, who work in consultation with a faculty advisor. Each issue of the Review contains articles written by scholars and practitioners, as well as comments and notes authored by journal editors and members. OLR also publishes an annual symposium issue.
OU Law students gain admittance to OLR via high academic standing or by selection through an annual writing competition. First-year students are briefed on these two methods in the Legal Writing and Research class. Members develop invaluable skills in analyzing legal problems, marshaling authorities, and expressing themselves accurately and precisely. Academic credit is also earned for participation on OLR. Approximately fifty students take part in OLR each academic year.
