About This Journal
Lincoln Memorial University Law Review was established in May of 2010. In October of 2010, members of the inaugural editorial board traveled to Durham, North Carolina and attended a conference on the Durham Statement on Open Access to Legal Scholarship. The Durham Statement calls for "free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself."
Adopting the principles of the Durham Statement, the Lincoln Memorial University Law Review is an online publication with a print version available only on-demand.
Lincoln Memorial University Law Review is an entirely student-run organization. The staff of the Law Review edits and publishes articles written by scholars, practitioners and students. Law Review participation is highly respected by members of the legal community because of the unique educational experience it provides.

It is the mission of the Lincoln Memorial University Law Review to produce an electronic scholarly journal dedicated to providing and promoting global access to authoritative legal scholarship. The Law Review publishes a collection of articles authored by legal scholars and practitioners as well as student-written notes and comments. The Law Review seeks to facilitate legal research and disseminate authoritative information on issues of current national discourse.
