The News is written, edited, and published by W&L law students for the Environmental Law Section of the Virginia State Bar. Intended as a practitioner's guide, the News contains student-written articles on environmental and natural-resources issues, summaries of key court decisions on the federal and state level, and commentary on pending state and federal legislation and regulation.
The Washington and Lee Journal of Civil Rights and Social Justice is a research and reference publication having its focus on legal issues that have an impact on racial and ethnic minorities. The C.R.S.J. Journal concentrates on legal realities and reports on developments in both statutory and case law in an effort to monitor their impact on minority communities.
Published four times each year, the Law Review presents lead articles, contributed by leading scholars, judges, and lawyers, as well as student notes. Writers are chosen during the summer after the first year of law school on the basis of grades and the results of a writing competition. Each staff writer develops a topic for original legal research, written over the course of the second year under the supervision of a faculty advisor and student editor. Selected writers continue as editors in the third year of law school.
