Asian Law Review (ALR)

Since our founding, the University of Pennsylvania Asian Law Review (ALR) has become one of the most influential forums in the nation addressing legal developments in Asia. As Asia becomes increasingly integrated, ALR continues the East Asian Law Review and expands its geographical coverage to South, Southeast, and Northeast Asia. ALR plays a critical role in promoting scholarly conversations and shaping the legal community’s perspectives by publishing articles and hosting a series of events. We pride ourselves in our vast selection of publication topics and our stress-free author experience. ALR leads discussion and debate through an annual symposium. In the past few years, we have invited internationally renowned panelists to discuss contemporaneous topics, such as “IP Law in Asia,” “Belt and Road Initiative,” and “Social Implications of AI & Robotics in Asia.” We also successfully co-hosted a panel on “Affirmative Action in a Post-Harvard Landscape: Escaping The Model Minority Myth” in Spring 2020. ALR offers a tight-knit, collegial environment where Associate Editors’ opinions and diverse backgrounds are highly valued. Our journal is comprised of students pursuing all degrees at Penn Law, including LL.Ms and S.JDs. We also welcome 1L Associate Editors on a selective basis.
