The Columbia Journal of Law & Social Problems, one of the oldest legal publications at Columbia Law School (CLS), publishes four issues each year. These issues contain a broad range of articles analyzing specific legal questions in light of related economic, political, or sociological considerations. The Columbia Journal of Law and Social Problems is one of the three most-cited Columbia journals by courts and is the only CLS journal written and edited entirely by students. Staff members are selected on the basis of their academic performance along with a competitive writing exercise at the end of the first year. Members of the board of editors are selected from the second-year staff.
