Welcome to the Georgia State University Law Review
The Georgia State University Law Review is a legal journal published four times a year by second- and third-year Georgia State University law students who have demonstrated outstanding writing and academic skills. The staff of the Law Review edits and publishes articles written by scholars, practitioners, and students.
The fall issue features an annual legislative review known as the Peach Sheets. This review provides the legal community with an in-depth view of the Georgia General Assembly's activities and the legislative intent behind significant bills. The winter, and spring issues feature articles from scholars, practitioners, and students on new and significant issues in the legal community. The summer issue features shorter articles focusing on the topic of the Law Review’s annual Symposium.
The Law Review’s annual Symposium is a forum that centers on a pressing legal topic. Distinguished scholars, judges, and practitioners offer insight in the form of live speeches and panels. The day-long event is organized by the Law Review’s Symposium editors and is typically held in the spring.
The Georgia State University Law Review invites authors to submit manuscripts to be considered for publication. The preferred method of submission is through Scholastica. Authors may also send submissions to email@example.com. Please see the "Policies" section of this website for further details on submitting a manuscript. Unsolicited manuscripts sent by mail are not returned unless the author provides a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
