Membership on the American University Law Review

 

The American University Law Review ("Law Review") typically extends invitations to between fifty and fifty-five students each year. The Law Review extends the majority of its offers to students who compete in the spring Short Write-On Competition and to students who demonstrate exceptional academic performance during their first year. The Law Review also extends a select number of invitations to students who transfer to the Washington College of Law ("WCL") and compete in the fall Transfer Short Write-On Competition.

Students are eligible to compete in the spring Short Write-On Competition if they are currently first-year full-time or part-time students or second-year part-time students who have not turned in a final case note in previous short write-on competitions at WCL. Transfer students may compete in the fall Transfer Short Write-On Competition in the year that they transfer to WCL if they are currently second-year full-time or part-time students or third-year part-time students.

Both the spring Short Write-On Competition and the fall Transfer Short Write-On Competition require participants to complete a case note that analyzes a legal question using materials provided to them by the Law Review. The American University Law Review extends invitations to students who write case notes that demonstrate superior legal analysis, organization, style, and endnote development.
