Pepperdine Law Review

Law Review at Pepperdine School of Law

The Pepperdine Law Review was founded in 1972 and is a scholarly law journal published by second and third-year law students at the Pepperdine University School of Law. In its 44 years of existence, the Pepperdine Law Review has been a resource for practitioners, law professors, and judges alike and has been cited several times by the Supreme Court.


Members of the Law Review are selected on the basis of academic excellence and outstanding scholarship, and membership in the Law Review is recognized as both an honor and a unique educational experience. The members of the Law Review edit articles written by professors, lawyers, judges, legislators, and other scholars, as well as producing their own Comments or Notes on legal developments and significant cases. We publish five issues a year and each issue contains articles written by legal scholars, practitioners, law students, and judges.

Symposia and Publications

George K. Yin speaks at Law Review's Tax Reform in a Time of Crisis Symposium

The Law Review hosts symposia on timely topics. Past symposia include include The Supreme Court, Politics, and Reform; The United States Vice-Presidency: In History, Practice, and the Future; Tax Reform in a Time of Crisis and The Future of National Security Law; and The New Normal in College Sports Realigned and Reckoning.

The Law Review will publish four volumes this year.

The traditional Pepperdine Law Review ("PLR") contains articles, comments, and case notes from professors, judges, legislators, practicing lawyers, and other scholars. The Annual Volume is nearly identical to the Traditional Volume but allows authors and editors to publish timely material on a tighter acceptance and publication schedule.
