The Inter-American Law Review (IALR) (formerly Lawyer of the Americas) is a scholarly international legal periodical run entirely by second and third year law students at the University of Miami School of Law. The review is devoted to providing a forum through which legal scholars, practitioners, and students discuss major international and inter-American legal and legally-related developments. IALR is recognized as the only student-run periodical to focus solely on legal issues which directly affect Latin America and the Caribbean. With the continuing emergence of Miami as a center of international trade, finance, and law, the focus of IALR becomes increasingly important and relevant to the surrounding environs.
Lawyers, businesspersons, professors, and students of law, political science, and international commerce will find the IALR a valuable source of information for recent legal developments in the Western Hemisphere and around the globe. The IALR publishes scholarly articles, comments, and casenotes addressing inter-American and international legal issues, both of a scholarly and of a practical nature, including such areas as:

Founded in 2007, the University of Miami Race and Social Justice Law Review, formerly known as the Black Law Review, is a student journal committed to the promotion and publication of scholarly articles that address the legal, social, economic, and psychological issues that affect communities of color, with a particular emphasize on the global Black community. The Race and Social Justice Law Review published its first edition in 2009. The articles published through the Race and Social Justice Law Review are geared towards promoting scholarly dialogue about major issues affecting communities of color, including, but not limited to the economics of discrimination, racial profiling, and healthcare.
The Race and Social Justice Law Review publications strive to reflect the diverse racial and cultural dynamic of South Florida by addressing issues facing all cultural groups in South Florida that identify as culturally or ethnically black. In doing so, the Race and Social Justice Law Review's publications consider not only American-born blacks, but also South Florida's vast immigrant population that includes individuals from the Caribbean islands such as Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, and Central and South America.
The University of Miami Race and Social Justice Law is only the eighth such law review in the country. By embracing and encouraging the development of the University of Miami Race and Social Justice Law Review, the University of Miami has once again illustrated that it is a pioneer at the forefront of diverse legal scholarship.
