About This Journal
The Missouri Law Review was first published in 1936, making it one of the oldest legal publications west of the Mississippi River. The Law Review is published quarterly by the University of Missouri School of Law. The Missouri Law Review is an entirely student-run publication. The Missouri Law Review is preceded by the University of Missouri Bulletin Law Series, started in 1913 and becoming the Missouri Law Review in 1935.
The Missouri Law Review is traditionally divided into three sections: Lead Articles, Comments, and Casenotes and Law Summaries. Lead Articles are written by law professors, practicing attorneys, and members of the judiciary. Comments, written by Missouri Law Review Members, provide an in-depth focus on a particular area of law. Casenotes, written by Missouri Law Review Associate Members, analyze issues raised by recent court decisions or legislative acts. Law Summaries are also written by Missouri Law Review Associate Members and provide a broad discussion of a statute or legal topic.
The Missouri Law Review publishes one volume per academic year. Each volume consists of four issues published quarterly in the Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall of each year.
