Columbia Business Law Review is the first legal periodical at a national law school to be devoted solely to the publication of articles focused on the interaction of the legal profession and the business community. The review publishes three issues yearly, which involve students in the editing of leading articles in business law, as well as the production of student-written notes.
Columbia Business Law Review is governed by an administrative board consisting of third-year student editors. The staff of the review consists of law students selected on the basis of academic performance during the first year of law school and writing ability as demonstrated through the writing competition held annually after the spring term. Second-year staff members assist in the substantive production of the review in addition to researching and writing a student note on a business-related topic developed with the assistance of a third-year editor. The note and other responsibilities effectively train members to perform accurately both scholarly and practical legal research.
