New England Law Review

Membership Information

The New England Law Review consists of approximately sixty second- and third-year law students at New England Law | Boston in Boston, Massachusetts and is led by an Editorial Board.

To become a member of the Law Review, students completing their first-year in the top fifty percent of their class may participate in a spring write-on competition. This competition takes place every spring semester. Based on performance in this competition, approximately thirty students are invited to join the Law Review, beginning in the Fall semester of their second year. Second-year evening students are also eligible to participate in the write-on competition. For more information on eligibility and the write-on competition, see our Constitution and By-Laws.
