The Administrative Law Review (ALR) is published four times annually by the students of the Washington College of Law in conjunction with the American Bar Association's Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice. The ALR strives to develop legal research and writing skills of students while publishing articles that serve both practitioners and academicians. Each issue is a nexus of theory and practice containing articles by practicing lawyers, judges, and academicians. The ALR contains student comments and casenotes on administrative law issues. In addition, the ALR regularly publishes symposia, conferences, and meetings on current topics in administrative law. For additional information, please visit www.administrativelawreview.org.

The success of the ALR is contingent upon the individual successes of its staff. As such, the duties and responsibilities of the staff are considered of fundamental importance. The contributions of every staff member are invaluable, and each is accorded the respect and appreciation consistent with his or her tasks.
The Executive Board, comprised of eight third-year students elected by the previous Board, oversees the daily operations of the ALR. The Board works closely with ALR's editors to ensure a quality publication.
The Editorial Board consists of the Articles Board and the Note & Comment Board. Editors perform substantive editing, prepare pieces for cite-checking and proofing, and make recommendations for publishing.
Senior Staff members (3Ls) are required to complete a minimum of 160 hours of staff assistance work, which consists of proofing, editing ("spading"), office work, and other appropriate tasks as assigned during the year.
