Wash. L. Rev. - Washington Law Review (United States)

Related Citation: Wash., P. (USA)


First published, as a single issue, in 1919 to 1920 by the Washington State Bar Association.

It then stopped publishing due to financial difficulties but students revived the Review in 1925.

That first issue of the revived publication, called 1 Wash. L. Rev., editorialized as follows (Paul Ashley):

"The Washington Law Review does not seek to add further congestion to an already crowded field. There are many excellent (law journals).

"But we feel there is room, and need, for a legal publication which will serve as a medium of expression for the jurists of the Northwest and will be devoted particularly to the interpretation and advancement of Northwest law.

"Since there is no statutory or common law restriction on shooting starward, we frankly confess our hope of making the review so useful that the attorneys of the Northwest will consider it indispensable."

It is now entirely student-run and as of May 2011, at volume 86.

According to the student-run website of the publication:

"Washington Law Review is a student-run and student-edited scholarly legal journal at the University of Washington School of Law. Inaugurated in 1919, it is the first legal journal published in the Pacific Northwest. Today, the Law Review publishes Articles and Comments of national and regional interest four times per year."
