The North Dakota Law Review serves as the journal of the State Bar Association of North Dakota and is the only legal journal in North Dakota. It is a triannual publication that features articles written by professors, lawyers, UND law students, and nationally recognized legal scholars. This year, the board’s goal is for every author of an article to have a tie to North Dakota.

“Since we are the only legal journal in North Dakota, it is important we publish voices from the legal community within the state,” Winbauer said. “We look forward to receiving submissions from North Dakota attorneys and judges.”
