The Loyola University Chicago Law Journal is the law school's primary scholarly publication that is distributed throughout the nation's law libraries, judges' chambers, and other various legal organizations. Published continuously since 1970, the Law Journal is committed both to the examination and analysis of current legal issues and problems and to the development of the law. The Law Journal is edited and managed entirely by students and publishes the work of distinguished writers, including academics, practitioners, and judges in print and online. The Law Journal also publishes student-written notes and comments.

We publish four print issues annually plus our online supplement. Our Fall and Spring Issues are general interest issues. Our Winter Issue has a different theme each year, continuing the conversations from our annual Spring Symposium. Our Summer Issue highlights interesting developments and perspectives on Illinois law. We also have an Online Journal where we publish shorter essays and reviews.

The Law Journal is pleased to make available articles from Volume 55. All citations are to 55 Loy. U. Chi. L.J. ___.
