University of Toronto Faculty of Law Review

The Law Review is one of the nation’s oldest and most respected academic journals committed to the publication of scholarly work related to law. It is also the only journal of its kind in Canada edited entirely by students and devoted solely to contributions from students.

The first issue, published in 1942, began as a record of student life and times in the faculty. By the 1950s, with the support of Dean Caesar Wright, the Law Review editors began the process of "professionalizing" the publication moving from a student newspaper to a forum for intellectual debate about the law. Since then, the Law Review has continued in this commitment, introducing new developments in legal science, philosophy, scholarship and education

Now two issues are published each year and contain articles on the cutting edge of legal research, comments on current important cases and book reviews of new publications, in both French and English.

The publication is supported in part by the J.S.D. Tory Fund, which provides funding for the general purposes of the Law Review as well as for the Tory Summer Fellowships, awarded to law students who research, write and edit for the Law Review during the summer.
