The American Criminal Law Review is the nation's premier journal of criminal law. The ACLR is published by the students of Georgetown Law.
The ACLR was first published in 1962 by the University of Southern California Law School in conjunction with the American Bar Association.
The ABA moved the publication to the University of Kansas Law School the following year and changed its title to the American Criminal Law Quarterly (“ACLQ”). As an ABA publication, the ACLQ concentrated on a practitioner’s approach to the criminal law.
