Writing a Law Review Student Note

To effectively write a student Note, the student must explore a specific area of the law in depth and acquire a level of expertise in that particular area rarely available through the traditional law school curriculum. The research required for a student Note is rigorous. Members must often spend time researching legislative history, statutory construction, and complex issues of the law, in addition to being exposed to scholarly legal writing on their topics. For a more in-depth analysis and pointers for writing a student note, the Law Review advises that students read Professor Leora Harpaz’s Guide to Writing a Student Law Review Note.
