The Avenger - Barclay College of Law

The Avenger – Barclay College of Law Review is a law school organization whose primary purpose is to publish a journal of legal and judicial scholarship. In addition, the Law Review aims to be an effective research tool for practicing lawyers and students, and to provide opportunities for its student members to develop their own editing and writing skills. The organization is part of the Cavalla International University – Barclay College of Law; student editors make all editorial and organizational decisions and, together with a professional business staff, carry out day-to-day operations. Its members are second- and third-year Barclay Law students who are dedicated to legal journalism.

The Law Review is published monthly from January through September, including a special Supreme Court issue and a Developments in the Law issue each April. The Law Review publishes articles, essays, journals, and book reviews by internal and external authors, academics, as well as judges and legal practitioners, and alongside pieces by student editors, including Notes, as well as comments on recent cases, legislation, and other legal developments. All pieces undergo a rigorous editorial process, and all student writing is unsigned. Authors interested in publishing in the Law Review are invited to submit manuscripts for consideration at barclaylawreview@cavallauniversity.education and review a sample article for formatting requirements at https://digitalcommons.wcl.american.edu/tma/vol9/iss2/3/.
