Founded in 2015, Howard Human & Civil Rights Law Review (“HCR”) is a student-managed, faculty-supervised law review published by the Howard University School of Law that began publishing in 2016. HCR focuses on issues related to human rights, civil rights, and international law.
HCR holds an annual Symposium related to these issues, with the keynote speaker giving the C. Clyde Ferguson Jr. Lecture. HCR publishes an annual volume of the lectures given at the Symposium, together with articles from eminent scholars and practitioners, a student Note written by the winner of the Pauli Murray Prize, a nationwide competition for the best student Note on human and civil rights.
The Human Rights and Globalization Law Review (Law Review) was a voluntary, student-managed and faculty-supervised, unofficial publication at Howard University School of Law published from 2007 to 2016. The Law Review became the successor to the Howard Scroll: Social Justice Law Review (Scroll). Expounding upon the foundation of Scroll, the Law Review published timely articles that focused on and contributed to an ever-changing, national and international, legal landscape.
In line with the mission of the law school, the Law Review enhanced scholarly dialogue on various issues of humanity, equal justice, social policy and worldwide development. Accordingly, the Law Review served as a legal and academic outlet for addressing thoughtful questions, and proffering answers about topics such as poverty, human trafficking, company outsourcing, genocide, mass incarceration, women's and children's rights, and the wide-ranging implications of war.
The Howard Scroll was a student-edited law review published as Howard Scroll: The Social Justice Review from 1992 to 1994 and as Howard Scroll: The Social Justice Law Review from 1995 to 2007. The publication's purpose coincided with that of Howard University School of Law: providing a fertile academic environment which challenges and encourage students to look beyond academia to examine the impact and implication of the law in our communities.
