The Journals at UC Hastings publish scholarly articles, essays, and student Notes on a broad range of legal topics. UC Hastings journals publish primarily open access online. The files are downloadable, and searchable, and can be shared between readers. First-year students who wish to participate on a journal during their second year are required to enter the Inter-Journal Writing Competition, which occurs in the Spring of the 1L year. Current students can learn more about participating in a journal on MyHastings.
