About This Journal


The Denver Law Review is the flagship journal of the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. The Denver Law Review strives to publish articles of the highest quality in all areas of the law. The Denver Law Review has proudly featured such distinguished authors as U.S. Supreme Court Justices Sandra Day O’Connor, William O. Douglas, and Byron White, noted constitutional law scholar Erwin Chemerinsky, and consumer advocate Ralph Nader. The Denver Law Review actively seeks submissions from professors, practitioners, and judges from all practice areas.

The Denver Law Review publishes four issues annually. Two of the issues contain articles of general legal interest, while one of the issues focuses exclusively on the law of the 10th Circuit. The fourth issue contains articles drawn from the Law Review’s annual symposium. In 2008, the Review also published a special fifth issue discussing the historic 2008 Presidential Campaign and the election of President Barack Obama.

The Denver Law Review is one of the oldest legal journals in the United States. The Denver Law Review dates back to 1923, when its predecessor, the Denver Bar Association Record, began publication. In 1928, the name of the publication was changed to Dicta. The journal was published under that name until 1963, when it became the Denver Law Center Journal. It became the Denver Law Journal in 1966, and the Denver University Law Review in 1985. Finally, the journal became the Denver Law Review in 2015.
