The City University of New York Law Review ("CUNY Law Review") is a student-run publication devoted to producing public interest scholarship, engaging with the public interest bar, and fostering student excellence in writing, legal analysis, and research. CUNY Law Review is recognized as one of the leading civil rights journals in the country.

Introduced in 1996, the New York City Law Review was published through Summer 2000. In Winter 2010, the title changed to the CUNY Law Review.

The CUNY Law Review is published twice-yearly, in Winter and Summer. In addition, CUNY Law Review continually seeks shorter, more time-sensitive contributions—such as comments on recent federal or state case law, critiques of legislative proposals, and legally relevant analyses of current events—for inclusion in Footnote Forum.
