The Law Review is published quarterly, and traditionally is divided into three sections: Lead Articles, Comments, and Casenotes. Lead Articles are written by law professors, practicing attorneys, and members of the judiciary; Comments are written by Law Review Members and are thorough studies of a particular area of law, and Casenotes are written by Law Review Associate Members and analyze issues raised by recent court decisions or legislative acts.
The Missouri Law Review is an entirely student-run publication. Responsibility for managing, editing, and producing each issue belongs primarily to an Editorial Board comprised of Law Review Members.
