Mercer Law Review

The Mercer Law Review was founded in 1949 and is the oldest continually published law review in Georgia.  Since its inception, the Mercer Law Review has served as an invaluable aid to practitioners and has provided a great service to the academic community through its publication of scholarly articles and its annual surveys of Georgia and Eleventh Circuit law.

Each four-book volume of the Mercer Law Review is edited and published by students of Mercer University's Walter F. George School of Law. The Annual Survey of Georgia Law reviews noteworthy opinions of the Georgia appellate course decided in the preceding year.  This is one of the most widely read books published by the Mercer Law Review because it provides practitioners with a concise overview of developments in the law for major practice areas. The Lead Articles Edition contains selected transcripts and related articles from each annual symposium hoted by the Mercer Law Review. The Articles Edition is a collection of articles selected for their timeliness and contribution to developing legal scholarship. Finally, the Eleventh Circuit Survey examines major developments in federal law by discussing noteworthy decisions of the United States Supreme Court, the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, and various district courts within the Eleventh Circuit.
