The Harvard Law Review is a journal of legal scholarship published by an independent student group at Harvard Law Schoolmarker.

Overview

The Review is one of the most cited law reviews in the United States. It is published monthly from November through June, with the November issue dedicated to covering the previous year's Supreme Court Term. The review has a circulation of about 4,000, and also publishes online. In addition, it publishes the online-only Harvard Law Review Forum, a rolling journal of scholarly responses to the main journal's content.

The Harvard Law Review Association, in conjunction with the Columbia Law Review, the University of Pennsylvania Law Review, and the Yale Law Journal, publishes The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation, a widely followed authority for legal citation formats in the United Statesmarker.

History

The Harvard Law Review published its first issue on April 15, 1887, and is the oldest operating student-edited law review in the nation. The establishment of this institution was largely due to the support of Louis Brandeis, then a recent Harvard Law School alumnus and Boston attorney who would later go on to become a Justice on the United States Supreme Courtmarker. The first woman to serve as the Review's president was Democratic political operative Susan Estrich (1978); its first black president was U.S. President Barack Obama (1991). The recently elected Andrew Crespo (2008) was the first Hispanic president.

The Harvard Law Review headquarters, Gannett House, is located on the Harvard Law School campus. It is a white building constructed in the Greek Revival style that was popular in New Englandmarker during the mid- to late 1800s. Before moving into Gannett House in 1925, the Harvard Law Review resided in the Law School's Austin Hallmarker.

Fourteen editors (two from each 1L section) are selected based on a combination of their first-year grades and their competition scores. Twenty editors are selected based solely on their competition scores. The remaining editors are selected on a discretionary basis.
