SMU Law Journals


SMU Dedman School of Law is proud to be the home of many independent legal journals.  

Over 240 second- and third-year law students serve on the journals’ staffs under the guidance of faculty advisors and distinguished community members who serve on their respective Boards of Advisors.  These students solicit, edit, and publish over 150 articles each year, including 28 student-authored pieces.  In addition, the journals’ staffs host several symposia events each year, bringing together legal scholars and practitioners from across the globe.
