University of Notre Dame


The Notre Dame Law Review Reflection began in 2014 with the intent to expand the scope of the Notre Dame Law Review and further its mission. Preserving a tradition of excellence dating back to 1925, the Law Review seeks to enrich scholarly discourse within the legal community while offering its members an invaluable opportunity for training in precise legal analysis and in clear and cogent presentation of legal issues. As a digital supplement to the print edition—named Reflection in honor of Our Lady, Mirror of Justice—the publication maintains and extends this tradition. As with each generation before it, Reflection remains committed to the vision of a law review “synonymous with respect for law and jealous of any unjust attacks upon it.” 

Every year, Reflection publishes pieces that supplement the Law Review’s five print editions. Mindful of the Law Review’s mission, Reflection seeks to publish a diverse array of content, including legal analysis from leading practitioners and professors, essays, case comments, response pieces, and student-generated work. It extends the journal’s reach throughout both the legal community and Notre Dame Law School.
