The University of St. Thomas Law Journal is the School of Law’s flagship law review, and it seeks to embody the school’s unique mission by publishing excellent legal scholarship that promotes ethical actions, the integration of faith and reason, and social justice. The Law Journal’s Latin subtitle, which translates into “faith and justice,” is a core foundation of the works we publish and the symposia we host each year.
Currently, the Law Journal is a symposium-based journal. We host two to three symposia each year, and ask our presenters to write a paper based on the symposium topic, their own experiences, and the discussion they take part in at the symposium. This promotes meaningful exploration of a current legal issue, and allows substantial collaboration between law review, our faculty, and outside contributors. Our symposia also give the law school community a chance to reflect on issues closely connected with the mission and vision of the School of Law.
