Law Review Member I and II
First semester Law Review members are required to take the Legal Scholarship course and write a case comment during the fall semester to receive their one credit. The case comment is a form of legal scholarship that critiques a recent court decision on a legal basis. Law Review members in their first year of membership are also required to help the Editorial Board in publishing the Law Review by completing weekly citation and substance checking assignments.
