Notes & Comments Editor
Prior

The Georgetown Law Journal is headquartered at Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C. and has published more than 500 issues since its inception, as well as the widely used Annual Review of Criminal Procedure (ARCP). The Journal is currently, and always has been, run by law students. Volume 1, Issue 1 was published in November 1912, under the supervision of Editor-in-Chief Eugene Quay. At the time, an annual subscription to the new Journal cost one dollar. The first article was titled “The 125th Anniversary of the Drafting of the Constitution of the United States.” In a three-paragraph statement of purpose, the editors of the new Journal proclaimed: When a school has gathered to itself some thousand potential lawyers, its efforts in the line of literary endeavor should find some proper expression; when a law school has reached the rank to which Georgetown has attained, it should be represented by a review that would take a place as high; and when we scan the names that make up the list of Georgetown’s faculty and the roster of her alumni, we can see no room for fear but that a journal representing her would take its proper rank.
