About the Review

The Loyola of Los Angeles International and Comparative Law Review (ILR) is a student-run publication dedicated to the advancement of legal scholarship, the resolution of contemporary legal problems, and the continuing education of the legal community. The Review publishes three issues each academic year. The authors' views do not necessarily reflect the views of the Review, its editors and staff, or Loyola Law School.

Participation as a staff member on ILR affords the student an exceptional opportunity to improve legal writing and research skills. Staff members are selected on the basis of academic performance and an annual writing competition. Both day and evening division students of Loyola Law School are eligible for selection.
