Hastings Business Law Journal

The Hastings Business Law Journal (“HBLJ”) is a scholarly publication written by academics, professionals, and law students. The Journal explores and critically analyzes international and domestic events as they shape the dynamic interplay between law and business. The HBLJ attempts not only to serve as a forum for legal academia, but also to provide a valuable research tool by illuminating the current state of the law and providing insight for the future.

The mission of the HBLJ is threefold:

  • to provide a forum for aspiring and current legal scholars to publish their work;
  • to provide the legal community with reliable and thoughtful commentary on new developments and trends in the law; and
  • to provide UC Hastings law students with the opportunity to hone their research, writing, and editing skills.
