UBC Law Review Society

The UBC Law Review Society publishes the UBC Law Review, one of Canada’s leading peer-reviewed legal journals.

The Society’s mandate is to stimulate debate and encourage discussion of the current state of the law in Canada. To accomplish this, the Society publishes independent articles, book reviews, and case comments through the Law Review. The Society also publishes the Table of Statutory Limitations (TSL).

The Law Review has a tradition of excellence spanning more than fifty years and boasts many prominent judges, practitioners, and professors among its past members. It was first published in 1949 as a collection of student essays entitled the UBC Legal Notes. In 1959, it officially became the UBC Law Review. It was incorporated as a non-profit society in 1966.

 

The UBC Law Review Society is comprised entirely of students, who edit all of the submissions and manage the business of the Society. Everything is administered by the Society Board, which currently has thirteen elected members. These members represent the editorial, TSL, and business staff. Faculty advisors, some of whom have served on the Law Review Board themselves, offer direction and act as facilitators between the staff and outside interests.
