Animal Law Review is the nation’s oldest law journal devoted entirely to the discussion of legal issues relating to animals. Soon entering its twenty-second year of publication, Animal Law Review has gained national recognition, boasting nearly three hundred subscribers. The journal transitioned from annual to semi-annual publication during the 2005–2006 academic year. The area of animal law is a broad and burgeoning field, and touches on a host of other areas of law including property law, contract law, intellectual property law, criminal law, torts, and administrative law. Animal legal issues include such topics as endangered species protection, regulating animals used agriculture, animal testing, issues facing companion animals, and animal cloning. Animal Law Review is dedicated to providing a balanced, scholarly forum for discussing these and other animal-related legal issues.

Environmental Law was the first law journal in the country dedicated solely to exploring the growing body of natural resources and environmental issues in the law. With a thirty year legacy of publishing the most cutting edge environmental legal scholarship, Environmental Law is widely recognized as a national leader in its field.
Proficiency in analysis, research, and writing is the hallmark of law review membership. Candidates for the law review are chosen annually through either, a writing competition held at the end of the academic school year (write-on) or by class rank (grade-on). Once candidates have served a year on the staff of Environmental Law, they may run for the editorial board, including the position of Editor-in-Chief, in annual elections conducted by the law review staff.
