Though it is an entirely student-led publication, membership to the Campbell Law Review is extended by invitation only to Campbell Law students of the highest academic caliber.
Students who have completed their first two semesters at Campbell Law School and whose cumulative grade point average places them in the top 50% of their class, including ties, are eligible to compete in the Spring Writing Competition. This is the only means of obtaining an invitation to the Campbell Law Review, except for candidate members and transferees (see Bylaws).
The Spring Writing Competition contains two parts: (1) a case note or condensed comment on an assigned topic, and (2) a citation exam. Each student's grades for the two parts of the competition will be weighed along with their cumulative grade point average to determine who will be extended an invitation to the Campbell Law Review.
Due to the timing of the publication of grades and class rankings, students must enter the Spring Writing Competition without actual knowledge of their rank or percentile. Entrants whose cumulative grade point average ranks them in the bottom 50% of the class will not be extended a membership invitation.
