Emory Law's student-run journals feature the legal scholarship of professors, practitioners, heads of state, and students from the country and around the world.

We publish our journals in print and electronically on our website. In addition, beginning in academic year 2013-2014 Emory Law is publishing a new online-only publication.

Emory Bankruptcy Developments Journal

Published since 1984 and the only student-run bankruptcy journal in the United States, the Emory Bankruptcy Developments Journal publishes semi-annually and hosts a symposium in the spring. This widely-read print and online journal provides a forum for research, debate, and information for practitioners, scholars and the public.

Emory Corporate Governance and Accountability Review

The Emory Corporate Governance and Accountability Review will explore the relationship between the corporation and its stakeholders in the United States and abroad. This online-only publication will address issues of who the relevant stakeholders are, and how far corporate responsibility to them should extend. It will focus on questions surrounding litigation, as well as issues of financial risk management, labor law, products liability, environmental law, health law, lawmaking, and corporate political involvement. In exploring these issues through the common lens of corporate governance, the journal will aim to examine the role of corporations holistically, and help shape the current state of corporate policy. The first issue of ECGAR is expected Spring, 2014.

Emory International Law Review

The student-run Emory International Law Review enjoys a world-wide reputation as a leader in international scholarship. The print and online EILR publishes articles on subjects ranging from human rights to international intellectual property issues to freedom of religion and belief.

Emory Law Journal

Founded in 1952 as the Journal of Public Law, the Emory Law Journal is the law review of Emory Law. The student-run print and online ELJ publishes six issues per year featuring academic and student articles on a broad range of legal topics. Additionally, the ELJ hosts the Randolph W. Thrower Symposium every spring, bringing together legal scholars from across the country to discuss timely legal topics.
