 Founded in 1916 as the Southern Law Quarterly, the Tulane Law Review is published six times annually and is a leading legal periodical that is managed and edited by students of the Tulane University Law School. The Review is recognized as a preeminent forum for scholarly publication in the areas of Civil Law, Comparative Law, and Admiralty Law. According to the Washington & Lee law journal database, the Tulane Law Review is the most frequently cited law journal in the area of maritime law by courts and other law journals. The Review is also the most frequently cited student-edited law journal in the area of international law. The Review has a significant international circulation and is on a select list of minimum holdings for courts and law libraries in the United Kingdom.
