School of Law

  • USC School of Law Building at Dusk


Law journals are industry publications run by law students. Student editors select and edit articles submitted by law professors. Joining a journal or law review looks great on a resume; it also gives you the opportunity to be part of an ongoing conversation in the legal community.


USC Law School offers students four ways to get involved in legal scholarship. 

Journal of Law & Education

The Journal of Law & Education (JLED) is a bi-annual publication featuring articles on all aspects of constitutional and civil law related to American education. The Journal is published online by the University of South Carolina School of Law.

Real Property, Trust & Estate Law Journal

The Real Property, Trust & Estate Law Journal is a peer review law journal published three times a year by the American Bar Association's Section of Real Property, Trust & Estate Law, and is the premier scholarly publication in the property and probate fields.

South Carolina Journal of International Law & Business

The South Carolina Journal of International Law & Business (SCJILB) is a student-run, student-edited semiannual publication focusing on a wide range of topics in public and private international law that provide analysis on the global economic and social flows that affect the world. SCJILB also hosts biannual symposia, bringing local, national, and international experts together to discuss current issues in international law.

South Carolina Law Review

The South Carolina Law Review is the principal legal publication in South Carolina. It is also the oldest legal publication in state, founded in 1948. The Law Review traces its roots to 1831, during the brief existence of the Carolina Bar Journal, which was published in Columbia, South Carolina prior to the Civil War. Today, the Law Review is the flagship legal publication at the University of South Carolina and is one of the most frequently cited legal journals in the country.
