Saint Louis University Public Law Review
St Louis Univ Publ Law Rev
The Saint Louis University Public Law Review was established in 1981 as a Specialty Journal to address legal issues of public interest and public policy. The purpose of the Public Law Review is to provide an open and uncensored forum to legal scholars, practicing attorneys, legislators, and public interest advocates for debating current topics that are significant in the area of public interest law. The Public Law Review is a student-edited publication that publishes two issues per year, one of which is based on a symposium hosted by the Law Review and held at Saint Louis University's School of Law. Over the years, the Public Law Review has featured prestigious authors such as U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, Congressman Richard Gephardt, and U.S. Senators Joseph R. Biden, John C. Danforth, John Ashcroft, and Pete V. Domenici. Recent symposia have featured a wide-range of topics including Ten Years After the Clean Air Act Amendments: Have We Cleared the Air?, The Jurys Role in Administering Justice in the United States, and New Approaches to Ensuring the Legitimacy of Police Conduct. In 2003, the Public Law Review coordinated efforts with other organizations to host the International Convention on the Rights of the Child and dedicated one issue to presentation of works discussed during that conference.
