Write On to the Mitchell Hamline Law Review
WHAT IS THE LAW REVIEW?
The Mitchell Hamline Law Review is the school’s flagship journal. The publication is entirely student-managed. The journal is published and distributed to practitioners, and is available on Westlaw.
HOW DO I JOIN?
Students join the law review by entering the Write-On Competition. Any student who has completed one year of studies and will not graduate before May 2018 is eligible to apply. You can sign up by filling out our sign-up form online or by visiting us while we are tabling in the Breezeway from April 19–26.

The write-on competition takes place right after finals, and over the course of 3 weeks: from May 18–June 8, 2017. Applicants will complete a 40-question Bluebook quiz and author a short case note (a mini-analysis of a recent Minnesota court decision). All grading will be anonymous, and successful applicants will be notified by early July.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A LAW REVIEW ASSOCIATE?
Associates conduct authority checks, cite checks, and make light edits on assigned articles. Additionally, all associates must write a case note during their first semester on law review, which satisfies the “long paper” requirement for graduation. Associates may also have their paper published!
For their services, staff members earn 3 pass/fail academic credits for the school year, which can be applied in any combination to Fall or Spring semesters.
WHY JOIN LAW REVIEW?
Associates become extremely proficient at writing, editing, and citing. Associates are also surrounded by hard-working and motivated people who they might not meet otherwise. Lastly, law review makes a lasting impression on a resume.
