Natural Resources Journal
The Natural Resources Journal (NRJ) is published by the University of New Mexico School of Law and is an international, interdisciplinary forum devoted to the study of natural and environmental resources. The Journal is policy oriented, and seeks to overcome the isolation of scholars in various disciplines who are concerned with natural and environmental resources.
New Mexico Law Review
The New Mexico Law Review is solely a student-edited, general legal journal published two times a year. The New Mexico Law Review members are law students at the University of New Mexico School of Law, and are dedicated to legal scholarship and are meticulous in their approach to legal writing.
Tribal Law Journal
The Tribal Law Journal was established in fall 1998 for the purpose of promoting indigenous self-determination by facilitating discussion of the internal law of the world's indigenous nations. The internal law of indigenous nations encompasses traditional law, western law adopted by indigenous nations, and a blend of western and indigenous law. Underscoring this purpose is the recognition that traditional law is a source of law.
