The West Virginia Law Review underwent several name changes. It was established in 1894 as The West Virginia Bar by West Virginia University professor William P. Willey.[2][3] The name was changed to The Bar in 1902. It was again changed in 1917 to the West Virginia Law Quarterly and The Bar and remained so until 1950 when it obtained its current title. As Willey was a prominent and active member of the West Virginia Bar Association, the early years of The Bar were closely associated it. The Bar was at first funded by advertisements and subscriptions, and published monthly issues. Willey served as the editor-in-charge from 1894 until he retried in 1917.[4] He began using the assistance of student editors in 1915.

In 1917, a faculty board took over the administration of the journal but increased the involvement of student editors by forming a Student Board of Editors in 1920. In 1951, Emanuel Magnuson became the first student editor-in-chief.[5] Since then the law review has been run entirely by student editors. From 1979 to 2003 the West Virginia Law Review issued an annual National Coal Issue devoted to coal law and policy.*

In May 2013, the West Virginia Law Review introduced its Inaugural Energy Issue in Volume 115-Issue 3.[6]
