Activism Meets Scholarship
Students become eligible to join UDC Law Review at the end of their full first or second years at UDC Law by participating in a write-on competition that takes place once a year, during the summer.
Students who have completed at least thirty hours of coursework and are in academic good standing, as defined by the UDC David A. Clarke School of Law Student Handbook, may attempt to write on. Students typically have two weeks to complete the submission, which consists of a Bluebook exercise, a research exercise, an editing exercise, and a legal essay based on a closed-universe of cases and articles provided by the Law Review staff. The essays are graded anonymously and offers of membership are sent before the start of the Fall semester.
