For over a century, the Yale Law Journal has been at the forefront of legal scholarship, sparking conversation and encouraging reflection among scholars and students, as well as practicing lawyers and sitting judges and Justices. The Journal strives to shape discussion of the most important and relevant legal issues through a rigorous scholarship selection and editing process. The Journal is led by eight Officers and is guided by a Board of Directors composed of alumni, faculty, and Yale Law School representatives. The Journal selects editors, usually after the spring of their first year of law school, in a process that typically includes assessment of source and citation skills in addition to skills at analyzing legal scholarship. Students may also be offered admission if they write a Note that is accepted for publication in the Journal.
