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 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. There is no GPA nor other academic threshold requirement to be eligible for Law Review.

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 complete the write-on process to express their candidacy. Students participating in the write-on process produce an essay and a legal citation exercise from a collection of sources chosen by the Executive Board. Each student’s essay and citation exercise is evaluated anonymously by multiple Board members, and offers for membership are extended based on available space and students’ performance in the write-on exercise.

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