Emory Law Journal

Founded in 1952 as the Journal of Public Law, the student-run Emory Law Journal is now the flagship law review for the Emory University School of Law. In addition to publishing six issues of legal scholarship every academic year and ELJ Online, its online companion, ELJ hosts the Randolph W. Thrower Symposium in the spring semester, bringing together legal scholars from across the country to discuss timely legal topics. ELJ »

IP Theory

IP Theory, founded in 2010, is an online, peer-edited, open-access intellectual property law publication. In 2013, Emory University School of Law joined as a partner of the publication. It is neither law journal nor blog; it is a different sort of publication designed to occupy a niche between the two. It serves as a new forum for essays and opinion pieces that are more concise (and more lightly footnoted) than typical law review articles, as well as book and other literature reviews. IPT »

Journal of Law and Religion

The Journal of Law and Religion is edited by the Emory Law Center for the Study of Law and Religion and published in concert with Cambridge University Press. JLR »
