Cardozo journals are highly ranked—in fact, they are among the top journals in the United States.
The Arts & Entertainment Law Journal maintained its spot in 2013 as the number one journal in the country for arts, entertainment and sports law and the number one journal for intellectual property law in the state of New York.*
The Cardozo Law Review is ranked 23rd in the U.S.*
The Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution is ranked eighth in the field of civil litigation and dispute resolution.*
The school sponsors six student-run journals (listed at left) that publish articles by distinguished academics and practitioners along with student notes and comments. These journals often sponsor symposia that lead to special volumes. Cardozo students and faculty also produce the New York Real Estate Law Reporter and, in cooperation with the University of California Press, Law and Literature.
Working on a journal provides students with an opportunity to develop editorial and writing skills as well as legal research expertise. They enrich their law school experience and are recognized as future leaders in their fields, while contributing to the advancement of legal scholarship. Students are selected to join the journal staff on the basis of academic achievement and writing ability. Second-year students write scholarly comments and conduct research, verify sources and perform other editorial duties. Third-year students can become members of a journal’s editorial board; as board members, they are responsible for editing student comments and outside pieces. Each year, students receive one credit for staff positions or two credits for editorial-board positions.
