The Journal of Catholic Legal Studies, formerly The Catholic Lawyer, is published by the staff and editorial board of the St. John's Law Review and focuses on legal scholarship with ethical, moral, canonical, or theological implications. It is primarily comprised of outside articles solicited by, and submitted to, the Journal of Catholic Legal Studies, but student contributions are also welcome. The members and editors of the Law Review diligently verify sources, check citations, proofread, and critically analyze all works set for publication. The Editor-in-Chief of the Law Review has primary responsibility for the Journal of Catholic Legal Studies, including overseeing the editorial process and preparing manuscripts for publication.
