Our Journal offers a unique opportunity for 2L members to research, write, and edit articles in non-traditional areas, in addition to receiving academic credit. Second year Journal members also have the opportunity to write, and be considered for publication, a Note on a cutting-edge topic of their choice. We welcome new members of all backgrounds to participate on this high caliber journal, used by academics and practitioners alike, to advance provocative and contemporary legal scholarship.
For first year students at UC Hastings who are interested in participating in HWLJ, please visit our Events page or send us an email to ask how you can become involved. Students will participate in the Inter-Journal Writing Competition at the end of their first year, and selections will be made from that application pool. The IJWC instructions for our 2015 selection process are available here.
