The College of Law offers and supports various ways for students to engage with each other, faculty, and the community.
UT Law students produce the following scholarly journals, showcasing new and emerging approaches to legal developments in different areas of law. These publications foster practical experience in legal writing, editing, and scholarship.
The Tennessee Law Review, first published in 1922, is the oldest legal publication in the State of Tennessee and the oldest law journal at the University of Tennessee College of Law. The publication covers a broad range of legal topics including national and state legal developments.
The quarterly journal of legal scholarship is edited and published by second and third year students at the University of Tennessee College of Law, with guidance from faculty advisors. Articles are authored by professors, practitioners, and law students addressing topics of interest to legal scholars, practicing attorneys, legislators, judges, and students.
Transactions: The Tennessee Journal of Business Law is published semiannually in association with the Clayton Center for Entrepreneurial Law by UT Law students.
Transactions focuses on legal developments and scholarship in business law. Articles in Transactions serve both the academic community and practitioners and address issues of national and regional interest.
The Tennessee Journal of Race, Gender and Social Justice is published twice a year by UT Law students. The journal provides an interdisciplinary academic platform that focuses on legal issues affecting people of different races, genders, and other societal forces. By focusing on legal developments in these areas, the journal allows scholars, students, and practitioners to improve racial, gender, and social relations through scholarly works, to foster research involving the subjects, and to provide an intelligent publication that strives towards the pursuit of social justice.
The first issue was published in spring 2012. RGSJ was established in the summer of 2011 by a group of law students seeking to diversify the content of the College of Law’s legal publications. The founding members of RGSJ sought to provide an interdisciplinary academic platform focused on legal issues involving race, gender, and social justice that have the potential to affect our local and national communities. RGSJ hosted its first Continuing Legal Education (CLE) program in the spring of 2014, and will continue to host programs for the legal community in the future.
