The Columbia Business Law Review
The Columbia Business Law Review provides invaluable analysis of cutting-edge issues by the nation’s foremost practitioners and scholars. Edited by student members, CBLR publishes faculty articles and student notes that focus on all aspects of business law, both domestic and international.
CBLR is entirely managed by law students, and is self-funded through our broad subscription base and donations by alumni and law firms. CBLR publishes three issues a year and involves second-year staff members in all aspects of editorial production. CBLR relies on its staff members to maintain the academic rigor of the journal and the caliber of its articles. In addition to editorial responsibilities, each staff member is required to research and write a note on an original topic, which fulfills the Major Writing Requirement. CBLR staffers will also contribute to the new CBLR website, editing online content and posting recent legal news dealing with business issues.
Our goal at CBLR is to develop not only our staffers’ technical and editing skills, but to expose them to different areas of business law. To this end, the journal hosts annual events with guest practitioners and academics on topics selected by the staff. Moreover, CBLR encourages the cohesiveness of our members and staff by implementing a mentor-mentee program between staffers and board members, sponsoring team lunches, and hosting staff happy hours. Finally, the journal has a CBLR outline bank that is available exclusively to CBLR staffers.
