Seattle University School of Law has four student-run journals. The students' participation in the writing assignments and the editorial process required by the journals is designed to improve writing skills and research techniques and to instill self-discipline and analytical proficiency through the hard work required to publish quality research works. The Seattle Journal for Social Justice and Seattle University Law Review are the two official student-run publications. The Seattle Environmental Law Journal and the American Indian Law Journal publish on a provisional status.
The AILJ is an academic collaboration among students, faculty, and practitioners. AILJ is designed to fill a critical gap in the amount of current scholarship available to those interested in the rapidly developing field of Indian law.
By promoting interdisciplinary discussions on urgent environmental issues, SJEL's scholarship explores the importance of environmental protections in business, international transactions, and land use.
The SJSJ is a peer-reviewed, student-edited journal that was founded in 2001 to promote critical interdisciplinary discussions on urgent problems of social justice, including exploring the often-conflicting meanings of justice that arise in a diverse society.
Law Review is a legal periodical that publishes research by legal scholars and provides valuable educational experiences for the student members. The Law Review strives to publish articles that will be useful research tools for students, attorneys, judges, and legal scholars, and to provide commentary on issues that will facilitate growth and development of the law.
