The Columbia Journal of Law and the Arts is a quarterly publication on all aspects of law and the arts, entertainment, media, and intellectual property, both national and international. Each issue is entirely student-edited and includes professional articles and student Notes. Students are selected for staff positions at the end of their first year on the basis of the Law Review/journal writing competition and their academic performance. Second-year responsibilities include the satisfactory completion of a Note and administrative and production duties, which include one hour per week in the journal's office and completion of cite-checking assignments. Selections for the editorial board are made from among the staff at the end of the second year.
