Ill.L.R. - Illinois Law Review

Related Citation: Nw. U. L. Rev.


The original title of what is now the Northwestern University Law Review.

The Illinois Law Review ran for the first 46 volumes, from 1906 to 1952.

With and since the 47th volume, the law journal was re-branded: Northwestern University Law Review (Nw. U. L. Rev.).

According to the law journal's website, circa Nov. 2012:

"The Northwestern University Law Review is a student-operated journal that publishes four issues of high-quality, general legal scholarship each year. Student editors make the editorial and organizational decisions and select articles submitted by professors, judges, and practitioners, as well as student pieces.

"First published in 1906, the Law Review has been distinguished by the scholarly qualifications and variety of its participants."

An impressive, but incomplete, set of past issues are available on the law journal's website.
