The Stanford Law Review (print: ISSN 0038-9765, online: ISSN 1939-8581) is a legal journal produced independently by Stanford Law School students. The journal was established in 1948 with future U.S. Secretary of State Warren Christopher as its first president. The review produces six issues yearly between January and June and regularly publishes short-form content on the Stanford Law Review Online.

The Stanford Law Review selects members based on a competitive exercise that tests candidates on their editing skills and legal writing ability. There is not a firm number of accepted candidates each year; recent classes of new editors have ranged from about 40 to 45. The candidate exercise is distributed to candidates late in their first year at the law school. Transfer students are also eligible for admission through the same process.

Notable alumni

The review's editorial board has a president, who is effectively the editor-in-chief of the publication. The current president is Andrew Siegel.[1] Notable past presidents include Warren Christopher (1949),[2] Brooksley E. Born (1964), Raymond C. Fisher (1966), David F. Levi (1980), Paul G. Cassell (1984), and Tony West (1990). Other notable alumni are William Rehnquist, Sandra Day O'Connor, Joshua Bolten, Carlos Watson, and Peter Thiel.
