Membership

Junior Membership Requirements

A student is eligible for membership on Law Review as a Junior Member if the student has, at the conclusion of the Spring Term, earned at least 24 credit hours and attained, at a minimum, a 2.8 GPA.This includes all Dual JD, part-time, and 3L Candidates.  However, students may only become Junior Members of the Law Review following the conclusion of the Spring Term.  For example, a student, regardless of his or her student program  status (i.e. day student, night student, extended day student or extended night student), who concludes the Spring Term with twenty-three or fewer credit hours will not be eligible for Law Review membership.  Once that student has accumulated the necessary twenty-four credit hours, whether it is in the Fall or the Spring Term, he or she shall be eligible for membership at the conclusion of the Spring Term.              

Write-on Requirement

A student must complete the write-on requirements to become a member of Law Review. This problem will be released shortly after the conclusion of the Spring Term, and will be designed to enable the Executive Board to effectively assess the writing, analytical, grammar, and citation skills of those students electing to write-on to the Law Review.  All students competing for junior membership will be assigned the same writing assignment and an anonymous pin for the purposes of grading your submission.

Transfer Students

A transfer student shall have the opportunity to write-on to Law Review as a Junior Member, if they satisfy the eligibility requirements listed above.  If you are transferring to the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law and would like to join the Law Review, please contact us as soon as possible, and we will make arrangements for you to complete the write-on problem.
