NEW YORK, N.Y. —The Cardozo Arts & Entertainment Law Journal (AELJ) is proud to have maintained its spot as the #1 journal in the country for arts, entertainment, and sports law and the #1 journal for intellectual property law in the state of New York, according to the most recent law journal rankings released by the Washington and Lee University School of Law. The AELJ also maintained its rank among the top five print journals in the country for intellectual property law. The law journal rankings are primarily based on the total number of times that articles in the journal have been cited, and also consider a journal’s impact, as measured by the average number of annual citations to the journal. To view the rankings, click here (under “Choose Ranking Criteria,” check “Combined Score,” and then click “Submit.”).

In addition, Google Scholar recently ranked AELJ as the third best journal in the nation for technology law. Google Scholar looks at the five-year h-index and h-median metrics, which measure both the productivity and impact of the journal, to determine its annual rankings. Google’s ranking of the top technology law publications nationally can be found here.

The Cardozo Arts & Entertainment Law Journal (ISSN 0736-7694) is entirely run and edited by Cardozo law students. Each year, AELJ publishes three issues focused on arts, entertainment, intellectual property, the First Amendment, sports, cyberlaw, and media and telecommunications law. The Journal invites scholars, professors, and practitioners to submit articles for consideration. Submissions can be submitted for review and consideration by emailing or through ExpressO.
