The Syracuse Law Review, established in 1952, is an intense legal research and writing program for student editors at Syracuse University College of Law and a national forum for legal scholars who contribute to it. The editorial board publishes four Law Review issues annually, one of which is the Annual Survey of New York Law.

Recent contributors to the Syracuse Law Review have included renowned scholars such as Erwin Chemerinsky, Owen Fiss, Akhil Reed Amar, and Ronald Rotunda. The Law Review also publishes six articles completed by student members during their first year of law review membership. In 2007, the Law Review hosted a distinguished panel of legal scholars and foreign policy experts for its annual Symposium, titled "A Nuclear Iran: The Legal Implications of a Preemptive National Security Strategy."

Current Volume

As part of Volume 59, the Syracuse Law Review is publishing a Winter 2008 symposium book that includes nine prominent authors who consider the future of gun litigation, the soundness of the majority and dissenting opinions, and the decision's incorporation to the states, among other issues. The symposium book will feature articles written by Carl Bogus, Michael C. Dorf, Richard Epstein, Paul Finkelman, Linda Greenhouse, David Kopel, Nelson Lund, Michael O'Shea, and Richard Schragger.
