The Consumer Law Review (CLR), published three times per year, is the only law review of its kind in the country. The CLR is dedicated to examining legal issues as they relate to consumers. Our publication provides a forum for dialogue among practitioners, law professors, and the rest of our broad subscriber base. Because of the CLR's wide subscriber base, the editors strive to avoid "legalese" and heavy footnoting while maintaining the highest level of scholarship in the field.

The CLR is devoted to featuring articles regarding the effect of developing legal issues on both consumers themselves and on the practice of law as it relates to consumers. Recent issues have included articles on advertising, financing, debt collection, product safety, professional services, insurance, consumer credit, corporate corruption, and consumer privacy. CLR articles may be found in their entirety on Westlaw and Lexis. Many law libraries also subscribe to the CLR.


The CLR's practical and reputable articles have been used and cited to by the Honorable Rebecca R. Pallmeyer of the Northern District of Illinois, in Congressional testimony, and in over forty different law reviews, as well as in many other legal and non-legal publications. Not to mention, the CLR is one of Ralph Nader's "favorite publications!" (THE TIMES UNION, Sept. 4, 1999, at A9.)
