The Marquette Law Review looks for dedicated, qualified students to become members. There are two discrete ways to become a member.
First, the Marquette Law Review extends offers to the top ten percent of each first year (1L) class. This determination is made after all first year grades have been submitted; offers are generally extended between the end of June and beginning of July.
Second, once a year, during the summer, the Marquette Law Review holds its annual write-on competition. The write-on competition asks a prospective member to prepare a memorandum, based upon provided cases, that addresses a given question. The write-on competition is open to Marquette University Law School students who have completed their first (1L) or second (2L) year, and who have at least two semesters in residence remaining at Marquette University Law School. Transfer students are welcome to participate in a modified write-on competition held later in the year.
