SMU Law Review Association (SMULRA) is a student-run organization at SMU Dedman School of Law comprised of approximately 100 second and third year law students.  

Membership on SMULRA is highly competitive and is based on a combination of excellent academic achievement and superior performance on an annual Writing Competition.  For more information on the Writing Competition, click here.  Newly-selected members serve as Staff Editors for their first year of service.  Staff Editors participate by compiling sources, substantively verifying articles, editing text and citations, and authoring two publication-quality academic articles that analyze recent cases, statutes, and developments in the law. To see the current list of Staff Editors, click here.  In their second year of service, students serve in various leadership roles as members of the Editorial Board.  Editorial Board members are responsible for the management and day-to-day operations of the journals, the symposia, and administration of the Association.  The President, Editors in Chief, and Managing Editors serve on the Executive Committee, which is the governing body of the Association.  To see the Editorial Board Masthead, click here.
