About New Mexico Law Review
When it began publication in 1971, the mission of the New Mexico Law Review, as the only general legal journal in the state, was to serve as a crucible for scholarly discussion of legal issues unique to New Mexico. Over the past four decades, the New Mexico Law Review has fulfilled that mission by serving as the major outlet for professional and student scholarship on important developments in New Mexico law.
With the globalization of the law in recent years, the New Mexico Law Review has broadened its coverage to include scholarship of national and international significance. Today, the New Mexico Law Review contributes a voice to the national dialogue on developments in various fields of the law, while still maintaining its mission to serve as the primary source for legal scholarship on legal issues affecting the great state of New Mexico.
The New Mexico Law Review is student-edited and published two times a year. The Editorial Board is comprised of third-year law students, who are solely responsible for all organizational and editorial decisions. Authors from across the country contribute to the journal and include law professors, attorneys, judges, and second-year UNM law review staff members.
