The Tulane Journal of Law & Sexuality: A Review of Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in the Law was founded in 1989 by a group of gay and non-gay students to provide a national forum for discourse on legal matters related to sexual orientation. It is the first and only student-edited law review in the United States to be devoted to issues of concern to the LGBTQ community. This journal is published every year and has a broad, national circulation. The review publishes articles by scholars and lawyers on a wide variety of subjects, including, but not limited to: constitutional law, corporate law, employment law, family law, health law, insurance, military law, and trusts and estates. The review also publishes traditional student writing by current Tulane Law School students.
Membership on the review is open to all rising 2L, 3L, LLM, and transfer students. Members are chosen through summer and fall writing competitions. The responsibilities of the staff members include: editing articles, journal membership recruitment, and writing case notes and comments on recent developments on any subject related to LGBTQ legal issues.
