The Tulane Law Review, a publication of the Tulane University Law School, was founded in 1916, and is currently published six times annually.[1] The Law Review has an international circulation and is one of few American law reviews carried by law libraries in the United Kingdom.[2]



The Law Review was started by Rufus Carrollton Harris, the school's twelfth dean.[3] Charles E. Dunbar, Jr., the civil service reformer who became a Tulane law professor, served on the board of advisory editors of Tulane Law Review from its inception until his death in 1959.[4]

A 1937 Time magazine about Rufus Harris describes the Tulane Law Review as "nationally famed."[5]

The Law Review was most recently cited by the United States Supreme Court on April 27, 2010.[6]


Membership to the Tulane Law Review is conferred upon Tulane law students who have "outstanding scholastic records or demonstrated ability in legal research and writing."[7] Specifically, membership is chosen based on a student's law school grades and/or performance in an annual anonymous writing competition.
