Law Review

Since 1916, the University of Detroit Mercy Law Review has contributed to the legal scholarship of the state of Michigan and the nation. Detroit Mercy Law Review articles have been cited in opinions from the United States Supreme Court, United States Circuit Courts of Appeals, and numerous state supreme courts.

This student-led organization publishes four issues a year and hosts an annual symposium in the spring to discuss topics of developing legal significance and scholarly debate. The Law Review also strives to provide opportunities for its members to improve their research, writing, and analytical skills, as well as develop a greater sense of the culture of the legal profession.
