Open Access Publications from the University of California


The UCLA Criminal Justice Law Review (CJLR) is an annual journal published by students of the UCLA School of Law and the Regents of the University of California. CJLR is a completely student-run organization and all management, editorial, and publication control is vested in its members.

CJLR focuses on current topics in criminal law, policy, and practice, and it seeks to develop a discourse regarding criminal justice by publishing articles, editorials, and interviews of practitioners, academics, and policymakers. CJLR also aims to foster a community by hosting an annual symposium for students, academics, practitioners, policymakers, and judges to come together to discuss current criminal justice issues.
