Student Journals And Publications

Students who work on the six Loyola student journals receive training in editing skills and gain experience in the analysis of legal problems and the logical and concise presentation of legal issues.

Loyola Law Journal is a quarterly student-edited publication, which presents works by distinguished scholars within the legal profession, as well as notes and case comments written by students. 

The International Law Review addresses various issues of international scope, and produces a symposium issue each year based on an international conference organized by the ILR editors. Outstanding scholars and political figures from all over the world participate in these conferences, and provide articles for the symposium issue.

The Loyola Consumer Law Review is the only publication of its kind in the nation. Focusing on current developments in consumer law, the Review covers such issues as advertising, financing, debt collection, product safety, professional services, insurance, and consumer credit.

The Annals of Health Law focuses on the practical analysis of major trends in health law both in the United States and abroad; it is peer-reviewed in cooperation with the National Health Lawyers Association.

The Children’s Legal Rights Journal, edited in conjunction with the American Bar Association Center on Children and the Law, provides practitioners in law and related fields with the practical resources they need to be informed advocates for their child clients.

The Public Interest Law Reporter, a forum for sharing ideas and news in public interest law, serves as a catalyst for further discussion, research and action.
