Shortly after World War II, several enterprising law students at the University of Florida College of Law committed themselves to advancing their law school into the ranks of quality schools with law reviews. These students’ dream was realized in 1948 with the publication of the first issue of the University of Florida Law Review.*
Since its inception, the Florida Law Review has maintained a tradition of excellence, publishing the highest quality scholarly work in a timely manner. Throughout the years, the Florida Law Review has contributed to the legal discourse on many hot-button issues and served as a launch-pad for the careers of many well-respected lawyers, judges, and professors.
Entirely student-edited, the Florida Law Review publishes articles, essays, lectures, and other scholarly work from professors, practitioners, and students from across the country and around the globe. The ninety student members and two staff assistants work tirelessly to publish one volume per year, with six issues in each volume. The Florida Law Review has evolved since its modest, postwar beginnings but has continued the tradition of excellence and commitment to service instilled by its founders six decades ago.

* In 1989, the University of Florida Law review formally changed its name to the Florida Law Review.
