About This Journal
The Florida A & M University (FAMU) Law Review is a student-run organization at the Florida A & M University College of Law. Our main purpose is to publish a journal of legal scholarship for use by practitioners, judges, professors, and students. FAMU Law Review currently publishes two journals a year, one in the Fall and one in the Spring. We are functionally independent from the College of Law, with the student editors making all editorial, organizational, and day-to-day operational decisions.
Law Review is dedicated to quality and consistency in its publication. For that reason, we put each article accepted for publication through a rigorous editing process, whereby student editors perform cite checks, review the grammar and diction of a piece, and make those stylistic changes that will enhance an article’s substance and flow. However, we firmly believe that the articles we publish should represent the voice of the authors, and not the voices of the student editors. We believe each author chooses her words delicately and purposefully. We will, therefore, only make stylistic changes when necessary, to make a piece easier to read and understand.
