The Mercer Law Review is edited and published by students of the Walter F. George, Mercer University. Founded in 1949, the Mercer Law Review has the distinction of being the oldest continually published law review in Georgia. For an overview of the accomplishments of the Mercer Law Review, see this historical account detailing the first fifty years.
Each year, the Mercer Law Review publishes four books: Annual Survey of Georgia Law (Fall), Articles (Winter), Lead Articles (Spring), and Annual Eleventh Circuit Survey (Summer). The issues appear, respectively, in January, March, May, and July. Back issues of the Mercer Law Review are also available online.
Individual copies or subscriptions to the Mercer Law Review are available. Contact the Law Review about copies or subscriptions. All copies, past and present, of the Mercer Law Review are available individually ($15.00 per issue), or by subscription ($40.00 annually to receive all four books). Each issue of the Mercer Law Review contains a table of cases, and the cumulative supplement containing cases from all four books is also available for $30.00.

Articles published in the Mercer Law Review are solicited by the Editorial Board each year. For the Georgia Survey and Annual Eleventh Circuit Survey, our authors are chosen for their knowledge and expertise in targeted areas of the law. Each Article represents the insight and perspective of some of the best practitioners in Georgia and throughout the Southeast. The Articles book features authors from around the country, writing on various topics of current interest for the legal practitioner. Lead Articles focuses on a specific area of interest, and often this book stems from the Mercer Law Review Annual Symposium, a two-day event bringing students, practitioners, and scholars together to analyze a relevant area of the law.
The Law Review welcomes unsolicited manuscripts to be considered for publication in the Articles edition. Unsolicited submissions should be double-spaced and citations should conform to The Bluebook (19th ed. 2010). Articles can be submitted via mail or online. For online submissions and expedited requests, contact our Articles Editor. To mail an article, use the information below:
