The Rutgers Law Journal is a professional publication devoted to critical discussions of current legal problems. Issued quarterly, it includes lad articles by practitioners and scholars, as well as student contributions in the form of notes and case comments. One issue of the journal each year is devoted to a survey of state constitutional law. Students may also compete for membership on the Rutgers Journal of Law and Religion, which is the world’s first online student-edited law journal dedicated to the interaction of church and state on a global scale, and the Journal of Law and Public Policy, which focuses on policy issues affecting our community, nation, and world.
Participation in the work of the Law School’s three Journals affords opportunity for intellectual and professional growth. Students are eligible to receive academic credit for law journal service.
Invitations for staff positions are extended to a limited number of first-year students on the basis of their academic achievement in the first year of law school and their writing abilities. Transfer students are afforded an opportunity in the Fall of their second year to compete for Law Journal membership. Second year law students are also afforded an opportunity to compete their second year by writing a Note. The specific requirements for eligibility and Journal competitions are available on each of the three Journal websites.
Rutgers Law Journal
The Journal publishes timely and provocative legal scholarship in the classical sense as well as interdisciplinary articles that are regarded to be of particular interest to the legal community.
Rutgers Journal of Law & Religion
The Journal's goal is to explore how law impacts different religions, and reciprocally, how various religions impact the law. The Journal invites submissions from scholars, students and others with insight into this process.
Journal of Law and Public Policy
The Rutgers Journal of Law and Public Policy has become a premier forum for articulating the vital intersections between the law and public policy. Grounded in the ever-deepening awareness that interdisciplinary investigation is crucial to an understanding of both the law and our culture, the Journal provides a unique intellectual arena for encounters between law and a variety of disciplines.
Advanced Moot Court Programs
A highlight of the upper-level curriculum is the Judge James Hunter Moot Court Program. A memorial to Judge Hunter, a United States Court of Appeals judge who sat in Camden, the program is endowed by his former law clerks. Upper-level students have the opportunity in the Fall semester to compete for Spring participation in this moot court program.
Selected students who display excellence in advocacy skills are also invited to participate in extramural moot court competitions on behalf of the law school. This year, the law school has teams competing nationally and/or internationally in the International Moot Court (Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition), the National Black Students Association Frederick Douglass Competition, the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot and Vis East, the National Latino Law Students Association Moot Court Competition, the National Baseball Arbitration, and the Internal Environmental Law Moot Court Competitions, among others.
