Law Review Project
Scribes supports law reviews and law review editors in a variety of ways. For decades, Scribes has presented the Best Law Review Article award to the best student-written paper published in a law review. In 2022, the organization produced The Scribes Manual for Law Review Editors, which includes 19 chapters to help editors understand and perform their myriad responsibilities. Scribes has also presented the Second Sunday Webinar series to further explore topics of interest to editors. In addition, every other year, Scribes will conduct a national survey of law reviews on a variety of topics.
Below, you can find links to the Scribes Manual, a sample handout from a webinar, and the results from the 2021 national survey. The webinar handout includes registration information for the Second Sunday series.
On March 26, 2023, Scribes will be hosting a virtual conference for law review editors. This virtual conference will help guide new law review and journal editors as they plan their upcoming year. The conference will begin with a plenary session titled “Top Tips from Top Authors.” Confirmed panelists include Professor Richard Delgado (Seattle), Professor Martha Minow (Harvard), and Devon Carbado (UCLA), all of whom are first-rate legal scholars with expertise in legal scholarship. The plenary will be followed by three concurrent sessions featuring law professors, outgoing and recent editors, and other experts.
