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 Caruso School of Law. In its 46 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.

Law Review Symposium, March 27, 2020

The Impact of the 2017 Tax Act on Income and Wealth Inequality: Lessons For 2020 And Beyond

As the 2020 presidential election approaches, tax policy and inequality are at the forefront of the debate among the candidates. This symposium will address the impact of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on income and wealth inequality.



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 four to five issues a year and each issue contains articles written by legal scholars, practitioners, law students, and judges.

Symposia and Publications

 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.

The Pepperdine Law Review

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.
