The Montana Law Review was established by law students in 1940, making it one of the oldest law reviews west of the Mississippi. The founders of the Review were committed to the concept of a law journal that would chronicle and critique the development of Montana law as well as advocate for change. The Review is still guided by the principles laid down in the words of the first Editor-in-Chief, William F. Browning:
“The policy will be to confine the Review to matters of Montana law or matters of especial interest to Montana lawyers.”
The Montana Law Review membership is composed of second and third year students. The Editorial Board, made up of third year students who have served as Staff members during their second year, is primarily responsible for editing, organizing, and publishing the Review. Each Staff member is responsible for contributing online content (in the form of argument previews, reviews, and case notes), editing submitted articles, assisting with publication, selling Montana Law Review gear, and helping with Law Review events.
The Montana Law Review is published bi-annually, with online content being published throughout the year.
