Additionally, the Journal has launched an online companion to feature shorter-form pieces written by contributing authors.

Works published in the Saint Louis University Law Journal Online either respond to pieces published in the print version of the Journal or summarize recent court decisions from both the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and the Missouri Supreme Court. The submission of short, timely pieces from any author is always welcome, and should be sent to the online editor.

The Saint Louis University Law Journal publishes four annual issues on a variety of legal topics. Its goal is to publish timely, pertinent and thought-provoking legal scholarship in every volume, as well as online in the Journal Online.

Each issue is overseen by a managing editor, under the supervision and direction of the editor-in-chief.

Further, the Journal staff seeks to make publishing with the Journal a positive and enjoyable experience for the authors with whom they collaborate.

Finally, the Journal endeavors to serve its readers, who are the final judge of quality. The Journal staff seeks to improve in quality with each successive volume and aims to continually improve upon the content, access and commitment to the St. Louis and surrounding legal community that previous Journal editorial boards established.
