About the Journal
The Bellarmine Law Society Review is Boston College’s premier source of undergraduate scholarship relating to the law. Although the BLSR is supported and managed by Boston College students, it provides the opportunity for undergraduates across the U.S. to contribute to national legal discourse.
The BLSR’s scope encompasses all aspects of the law, including and especially its relationship with other academic disciplines, both in the social and natural sciences. Although the Editorial Board does not prefer one genre of submission over another, the BLSR's best scholarship highlights the interdisciplinary nature of the law and the many ways in which an undergraduate education exposes important questions thereof.
The Boston College Bellarmine Law Society, which sponsors the BLSR, is a student organization founded over thirty years ago with the intention of providing resources and information to prepare students for law school. The society is named after St. Roberto Francesco Romolo Bellarmino (1542-1621), a Jesuit theologian and defender of the Roman Catholic Church.
