The Journal is a law review publication with over 30 years of experience and recognition in the legal community. It is read nationally and internationally and has been cited by the judiciary and several prestigious law reviews. According to a Washington and Lee University, the Journal is currently ranked 136th out of 681 student-edited specialized journals, 4th in “Commercial Law” and “Corporations and Associations,” outranking similarly focused law reviews and journals at schools such as Harvard, NYU, and Fordham. Student members are awarded one credit for each semester of participation on the Journal, as well as one credit for a required writing assignment. This assignment also satisfies the writing requirement for Delaware Law. Members who are selected to Board positions receive two credits each semester in their third year. Membership on the Journal is listed as an “honor” on your resume and can be noted in the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory.
All members have an equal opportunity to compete for publication, and a published article is an achievement that can be listed on your resume, a cover letter, and in Martindale-Hubbell, SSRN, LexisNexis and Westlaw. Imagine presenting a prospective employer with a copy of the Journal with YOUR published article contained inside in response to a request for a writing sample. You may know all of these things already—what you may not know is that the majority of employers who recruit students in the fall require or strongly prefer students with Journal experience. Wouldn’t it be nice to list the Journal on your resume this August?
