The University of Mississippi School of Law is associated with a number of law journals–both student- and peer-edited. The Law School’s journals expand legal knowledge, promote scholarship, aid practitioners, and regularly provide students with opportunities to work with authors and develop legal writing and research skills.
Mississippi Law Journal
The Mississippi Law Journal, serving the Mississippi Bar since 1928, is the flagship journal of the University of Mississippi School of Law. The Journal’s scholarly publications include articles written by academics, practitioners, and students.
The MLJ publishes a primary print edition, Supra–an online edition, and a weekly case briefing service for subscribing attorneys. The Mississippi Law Journal also partners with the peer-edited Federal Courts Law Review to provide student editing services for the Review and print publication of its articles.
The MLJ’s innovations in recent years include the comment development program, faculty peer review forum, external publication initiative, record levels of student publication, and the MLJ-FCLR partnership.

Mississippi Law Journal Peer Review
In 2014, the law faculty and student editors of the Mississippi Law Journal began an exciting new faculty-student academic partnership—creating a forum for the publication of peer-reviewed articles in the pages of the Journal. This peer review process combines the best facets of two distinct academic traditions—the law school practice of student-edited journals and the social science practice of expert faculty peer review of articles.
