About Hastings Law Journal
Since 1949, Hastings Law Journal has published scholarly articles, essays, and student Notes on a broad range of legal topics. With close to 100 members, HLJ publishes six issues each year, reaching a large domestic and international audience. One of these issues may be dedicated to our periodic symposium, which features speeches, commentaries, and panel discussions on an area of current interest and development in the law. Recent topics have included: “Cybersecurity, Fake News & Policy: Dis- and Mis- Information,” ““The Legal Dimension of 3D Printing,” “From Bench to Society: Law and Ethics at the Frontier of Genomic Technology,” and “Law & Policy of the Developing Brain: Neuroscience from Womb to Death.”
UC Hastings’ flagship law review has contributed to the advancement of knowledge in legal thinking through scholarly articles written by experts in the legal community. An occasional issue is devoted to a law symposium. The Journal publishes six times per year: December, February, April, May, June, and August.
