Author and Submission Information

The Akron Law Review is a scholarly legal journal that is published four times per year by a student editorial board and staff. The Akron Law Review has been listed as an authority in 4 decisions by the Supreme Court of the United States of America, in 21 decisions by nine different U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeal, by U.S. District Courts in nine different states, and in almost 80 cases in state courts across the nation. The Akron Law Review has also been cited in other leading law journals including the Harvard Law Review and the Yale Law Journal.

Prior symposiums have focused on complex litigation, elder law, judicial elections, and education law. In Volume 36, two issues featured articles on the importance of John Bingham to the Fourteenth Amendment.

The Akron Law Review is an important and permanent fixture of The University of Akron School of Law. In addition to its educational function, the Law Review serves two other purposes: as a research aid for the legal community and as a means of providing innovative analysis of contemporary issues.
