About This Journal
The BYU Prelaw Review is one of the only undergraduate prelaw reviews in circulation. Unique in its quality, the BYU Prelaw Journal is well-recognized and annually distributed to each law school across the country. The journal mirrors a typical law review found at any top-tier law program: student-run and published. While many of the authors and editors are preparing for law school, we welcome applicants from all disciplines. Some of our current members are preparing for various graduate programs, and others are preparing for careers in the field of publication and editing. Regardless of what your goals are, the BYU Prelaw Review provides a unique opportunity to students wanting to improve their research, writing, and editing skills.
Because graduate school prepares students for further research in their respective fields, the Prelaw Review is one way to show your preparation. As a published author, you demonstrate your growing ability to research analytically and present meaningful insights. Editors show their abilities in critical review and analysis. As a published journal, the Review accomplishes these purposes and allows students to showcase their skills to a scholarly audience such as law schools. The Prelaw Review acquaints students with different research avenues and the most widely-used legal citation guide, The Bluebook, by Harvard Law Review.
