Published quarterly, the Arkansas Law Review has as its primary objective the dissemination of scholarly and authoritative articles on significant legal issues. Its Editorial Board serves the Arkansas legal community and beyond by publishing scholarship of state, national, and international importance. The Arkansas Law Review was established with the publication of the first issue in the fall semester of the 1946-1947 academic year.
Prior to the establishment of the Arkansas Law Review, the Arkansas Bar Association expressed interest in the creation of a law review and appointed committees to explore the possibility. Shortly thereafter, a permanent plan was formulated under which the law review was made a joint undertaking of the law school and the Arkansas Bar Association. Today, the law review is an established part of the legal community in Arkansas and it is cited and relied upon by lawyers and courts throughout the nation. This is a collection of scholarly articles and student work that have been published in the Arkansas Law Review.
