The Villanova Law Review is a student-run and student-edited journal devoted to the advancement of legal scholarship. To this end, the Law Review publishes analytical and critical articles written by law professors, judges, scholars, and students on a wide variety of legal topics as well as endowed lectures presented by professors and practitioners. All articles are subjected to a rigourous editorial process designed to improve the article's substance, tone and readability. One volume is published annually, and each publishes five issues including a Symposium issue and a Third Circuit Review issue. The Law Review has several purposes. First, it serves as an academic forum for noteworthy legal scholarship. Second, the Law Review serves as an important research tool for scholars, practitioners and students of law. Third, the Law Review provides an opportunity for its members to hone their editing, research and writing skills. The Law Review staff is comprised of second- and third- year students, who are selected on the basis of their academic standing or by a writing competition. Each student serves two years as a Law Review member. The overall operation of the Law Review is the Editorial Board, which is composed of third-year students. The Editorial Board consists of the Editor-in-Chief, the Executive Editor, the Managing Editor of Production, the Research and Business Editor, the Managing Editors of Outside Articles, the Managing Editors of Student Works, the Symposium Editors and the Special Projects Editors. Student editors make all editorial and organization decisions and are responsible for the day-to-day operation of the Law Review.
