The Wake Forest Law Review is a student-run organization that publishes four issues annually, hosts a lecture series, and sponsors a daylong symposium focused on a specific, dedicated law review topic. Membership is determined through academic performance and/or participation in a writing competition. Students who are in the top 10 percent after their first year are invited to join the Wake Forest Law Review. An equal number of students are invited to join based upon their scores in the writing competition and their grades. Students who are in the top 10 percent after their second year are also invited to join.
The Law School publishes the Wake Forest Intellectual Property Law Journal. This publication features articles, notes, and comments from intellectual property practitioners, students, and faculty. The IPLJ encourages students to submit articles focusing on topics such as trademarks, copyrights, patent, trade secrets, unfair competition, cyberlaw, Internet business law, or any other subject of intellectual property. These items can be papers already completed for coursework or articles specifically written for the journal.
The Wake Forest Journal of Law and Policy is an interdisciplinary publication that explores the intersection of legal issues with public and social policy. Consistent with Wake Forest’s motto of “Pro Humanitate,” the Journal’s mission is to introduce, maintain, and advance discourse so as to uncover policies that will engender equality and the true administration of justice. The Journal seeks submissions that, among other goals, address various societal needs through legal doctrines and systems. While the Journal primarily publishes legal analyses, we welcome other scholarly works and social commentary that contribute to a diverse and dynamic intellectual dialogue.
Faculty & Student Research
One of the great byproducts of working with legal scholars who are recognized for being among the most productive in the nation is the chance to collaborate with them. Students frequently collaborate with professors on their own research for eventual publication, such as a recent project one student did with Professor Ron Wright on juvenile video hearings and post-conviction remedies. Other students have the opportunity to assist faculty with their research for articles, casebooks, or treatises.
