Prospective Members


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 either completed their first year of law school at the University of Colorado or transferred to the University of Colorado Law School from another law school for their second year.

Board members select new members through a legal-writing competition called “Write-on.” Write-on takes place during a three-week period after the Spring Semester in May, when rising second-year law students may enter as contestants. Contestants produce an essay, a citation exercise, and a personal statement. The Contestants must produce the essay and citation exercise from a collection of sources chosen by the Managing Editor. To select new members, board members anonymously grade the essay and citation exercise. They may also consider contestants’ personal statements.

Selected members must commit to work for the Law Review for two years in return for academic credit. If you have any questions about membership eligibility or the Write-on competition, please contact our Managing Editor, Nora Cooke.
