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.

"From the Crime Scene to the Courtroom: The Future of Forensic Science Reform"

The 2018 Georgia State University Law Review Symposium will examine how forensic science and the criminal justice system can forge a collective path forward. Our goal is to bring together the legal and scientific communities to discuss the state of forensic evidence in 2018, illuminate technological advances in forensics, and address ethical issues relating to law and science. Through this symposium, the Georgia State University Law Review hopes to foster meaningful debate on these important topics and inspire collaboration that improves the outcomes and expectations for forensic science and its place in criminal cases.

Please join the Law Review from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, April 6 at the Georgia State University College of Law for the symposium featuring scholars, national forensic science experts, practicing attorneys and judges for a discussion on a variety of issues.
