The Alaska Law Review is a scholarly publication that examines legal issues affecting the state of Alaska. It is composed of second and third year law students from Duke University School of Law, and governed by a faculty advisor committee.
The Alaska Law Review publishes in June and December. In publishing these issues, the Alaska Law Review seeks to provide articles related to current legal trends and issues of practical importance to the Alaska Bar. The Alaska Law Review also publishes an annual Year-in-Review consisting of short summaries of significant court decisions from Alaska Superior Courts, the Alaska Court of Appeals, the Alaska Supreme Court, the U.S. District Court for the District of Alaska, and the Ninth Circuit.
The Alaska Bar Association recognizes a need for a scholarly publication devoted specifically to issues affecting Alaska. Alaska does not, however, have a state law school so the Alaska Bar selected Duke University School of Law to publish the Alaska Law Review.
