The FIU Law Review is a student-run organization responsible for producing a journal of scholarly legal works. As a symposium-based law review, our issues are composed of articles addressing a particular area of the law with our authors often participating in a live symposium before publication.
Established in 2004, FIU Law Review continues to develop its operations and increase its production, currently publishing two issues per year (Fall and Spring). As the first journal in FIU Law’s history, the FIU Law Review is committed to facilitating the College’s growth and impact in the legal community.
2013-2014 Academic School Year
FIU Law Review will host a live round-table discussion entitled Stanley Fish and the Meaning of Academic Freedom on Friday, January 24, 2014 from 4 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the College of Law. The symposium will feature discussions about the legal, theoretical, and practical underpinnings of Dr. Stanley Fish’s forthcoming book, Versions of Academic Freedom: From Professionalism to Revolution. Related scholarly works about academic freedom and higher education will also be discussed. Distinguished guests include Dr. Stanley Fish, Dean Robert Post of Yale Law School, Professor Frederick Schauer of the University of Virginia School of Law, and Professor Lawrence A. Alexander of the University of San Diego School of Law. The round-table transcript will be published in the Fall 2014 issue of the FIU Law Review. The fall 2014 issue will also feature articles by distinguished authors such as Judge Richard Posner, Professor Ernest Weinrib, and Professor Andrew M. Koppelman.
FIU Law Review membership is contingent upon the successful completion of the annual Write-On competition. The Write-On competition takes place immediately following the conclusion of Spring semester exams. Students who have completed the foundation curriculum and are in good academic standing are eligible to participate in the Write-On competition.
The Write-On competition consists of a written case note as well as a Bluebook examination. Students’ class rank will also be a factor taken into consideration when extending invitations; however, all students, regardless of class rank, are required to complete the Write-On competition in order to be eligible for membership. Furthermore, all invitees must meet any additional requirements set forth in the FIU Law Review Bylaws and Constitution. The Editorial Board will decide on the number of invitations to extend, taking into consideration both the quality of the completed examinations and the anticipated need.
Further details on FIU Law Review membership will be dispersed toward the end of each Spring semester. The Bylaws and Constitution also contain specific rules that govern the selection process. To the extent that there are any conflicts between the website and the Bylaws and Constitution, the most recent edition of the Bylaws and Constitution shall govern.
Any student who wishes to receive additional information is invited to e-mail Editor-in-Chief Benjamin Crego at firstname.lastname@example.org.
