100th Volume

In the 2015-2016 school year, the Minnesota Law Review will begin issuing Volume 100 and celebrating its hundredth anniversary. As one of the oldest and most venerable law journals in the nation, the Minnesota Law Review has published hundreds of articles by the most respected scholars in the field and, we hope, has influenced the law for the better. The faculty, board, and staff members of the journal have been an integral part of the publication process since its inception.

In observance of our 100-volume anniversary, we are asking alumni, former authors, faculty members, symposium speakers, and anyone else who has been involved with the journal to share their thoughts, memories, and other information about their experiences. Please send us your stories and help us to generate this information by filling out the form below.

We are also asking anyone who has photographs of past journal members, or photos from past law review events, to share these with us so that we can have a visual chronology of the Minnesota Law Review experience. Please email your photos to olso6822@umn.edu.

The Minnesota Law Review board and staff members are in the process of planning special events for our 100-volume celebration. More information about these events is coming soon. Questions may be directed to olso6822@umn.edu.

We are reaching out to former alumni and others who have been involved with the Minnesota Law Review to identify some of the most important articles and notable alumni, and to share stories and experiences about the journal from years past. Please fill out this form to submit your memories to us!
