The University of British Columbia Law Review (the "UBC Law Review"), the official law review of the University of British Columbia Faculty of Law, is one of Canada’s leading peer-reviewed legal journals. The UBC Law Review Society ("the Society") publishes the UBC Law Review. Similar to the Harvard Law Review, the editorial process and business of the Society is run by Juris Doctor students, while manuscripts submitted to the journal are peer-reviewed by professors with specialized knowledge of the subject matter. The process is rigorous and only the highest quality manuscripts are published.[1]

The UBC Law Review has a tradition of excellence spanning more than fifty years and boasts many prominent judges, practitioners, and professors among its past members. It was first published in 1949 as a collection of legal essays entitled the UBC Legal Notes. In 1959, it officially became the UBC Law Review. It was incorporated as a non-profit society in 1966. The UBC Law Review is a top ranking scholarly publication in Canada and globally, alongside the University of Toronto Law Journal and McGill Law Journal.[2]
