Prospective Members

This guide provides resources for prospective and current members of the University of Colorado Law Review (CLR).

All members and editors of the Colorado Law Review are students of the University of Colorado Law School. People eligible to join the Law Review must have completed their first year of law school either at the University of Colorado or at another law school if they are transferring to the University of Colorado.

Board members select new members through a legal writing competition called write-on. Write-on begins in May, when rising second-year law students may enter the competition as contestants. Contestants must produce an essay and a legal citation exercise from a collection of sources chosen by the incoming Managing Editor. To select new members, board members anonymously grade contestants’ essays and citation exercises.

Selected members must commit to work for the Law Review for two years. In return for their work, members receive academic credit.
