About the New Mexico Law Review

The New Mexico Law Review is solely a student-edited, general legal journal published three 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.

Contributing authors from across the country include law professors, attorneys, judges, and our own Law Review second-year law students. The Editorial Board selects the articles for publication, then works with each author to finalize their article to meet the rigorous standards the New Mexico Law Review sets for itself and its authors. Articles are selected based on the quality of content, research, and writing. The Board is comprised of third-year law students, who are solely responsible for all organizational and editorial decisions.

Information about the Publication


The New Mexico Law Review welcomes articles on all areas of law and law-related topics, particularly those of interest to practitioners in New Mexico and the region. Articles are accepted throughout the calendar year.
