The University of St. Thomas Law Journal embodies the school's unique mission by publishing excellent legal scholarship that inspires ethical and moral decision-making with an emphasis on social justice. The Journal hosts a series of on campus symposia designed to advance the mission and explore the theme reflected in its Latin sub- title, translated "faith and justice." The semiannual symposia also supplies the bulk of the material for each issue. The format promotes meaningful exploration of an intriguing legal issue, and encourages substantial collaboration be- tween law review and faculty members. It's an arrangement designed to draw on the faculty's expertise, while keeping creative and editorial control in the students' hands. First year students are selected as journal members based on a write-on competition held immediately after the spring semester.
