About Virginia Law Weekly

The Virginia Law Weekly newspaper is published by students at the University of Virginia School of Laweach Wednesday of the school year, excluding breaks and exam periods.

Virginia Law Weekly was first printed in 1948 and has been cited by several courts in published judicial opinions, including the U.S. Supreme Court in Patterson v. New York, 432 U.S. 197 (1977), the Fifth Circuit in Thermo King v. White's Trucking Service, 292 F.2d 668 (5th Cir. 1961), and various state courts.

The Law Weekly was first published online in the late 1990s, providing downloadable PDF versions of each week's edition. The website was expanded by Editor-in-Chief Scott Meacham '04 in the winter of 2004, and in the spring of 2005, Features Editor Joey Katzen '07 relaunched it as a full-featured interactive newspaper site. In the winter of 2016 Tech Editor David Markoff '17 redesigned the website.

The newspaper is happy to accept advertising and works hard to see that advertisers reach the market for which they are aiming. We advise reserving ad space early, and the publication dates are subject to change.

Useable formats in order of preference are: .tif (300dpi grayscale), .pdf, .jpg, and MS Word. E-mail communication is fastest, but please also feel free to call 434.924.3070 if you have any questions
