The Columbia Human Rights Law Review
Columbia Human Rights Law Review, a student-edited legal journal, publishes student and professional articles on contemporary human rights and civil liberties issues both in the United States and around the world.
The journal seeks to present in-depth analyses of specific legal questions as well as broad surveys of the law in particular areas. Topics covered include freedom of speech, criminal law and procedure, poverty and family law, the impact of legal institutions on the lives of individuals and groups, and the efficacy of various international efforts to protect human rights. The staff is selected from applications received after the students' first year. Members of the editorial board are chosen from the second-year staff.
