    Gain exposure through Hamline Law's journals

    Hamline Law publishes two student-managed scholarly journals, the Hamline Law Review and the Journal of Public Law & Policy.  These journals engage members of the bar and judiciary on critical issues in the legal field while giving you, as a Hamline Law student, the opportunity to expand your legal analysis and writing skills. Both publications have a formal process each spring for selecting associate editors. Associate editors receive 1 credit per semester whereas members of the board of editors receive 2 credits per semester.
