Since its foundation in 1966, the Ottawa Law Review has been devoted to excellence in legal scholarship and to the promotion of a diversity of opinion on current legal issues. The Ottawa Law Review’s mandate to publish articles of the highest quality has resulted in its articles being cited in decisions by the Supreme Court of Canada.
Student editorship is highly regarded within the profession and can be a great benefit to students seeking employment. For many students, working at the Ottawa Law Review is their first opportunity to add legal experience to their curriculum vitae. Former editors have gone on to work at Canada’s largest law firms and clerk at all levels of court.
The Ottawa Law Review is administered and edited entirely by students of the Faculty of Law, Common Law Section, University of Ottawa, under the supervision of a Faculty Advisor. It publishes two issues each year.
