Chapman Law Review Journal CoverThe Chapman Law Review is a student-run scholarly journal at Chapman University Fowler School of Law. Each year, the Review:

  • Publishes an online journal two times – Publishes a journal, both online and print, once per semester
  • Publishes the best notes or comments written by our second-year students
  • Hosts an annual symposium each spring that brings together noted scholars to discuss far-reaching legal questions

Write-on Competition

The write-on competition is usually held in late June over a ten-day period. The competition consists of a written response to an open-universe prompt based on a current legal issue. Students will be provided with a prompt and will conduct independent legal research to address the issue provided. Submissions will be evaluated based on the form and content of the student's legal arguments, the student's ability to locate relevant sources, and the accuracy of the student's bluebook citations.

Faculty Support

The Chapman Law Review receives tremendous support from the faculty and administration, including its Faculty Advisor, Professor Celestine McConville.
