The Northwestern Reporter (previously titled The Reporter)

The Reporter (1949-1981) began in 1949 as an eight-page newsletter created to inform alumni, friends, and colleagues of the achievements and events of Northwestern University School of Law and its community of students, faculty, and alumni. The Reporter was originally a student publication, and its founding editors were members of what was then called the Junior Bar Association (now known as the Student Bar Association). In 1981, it was succeeded by the Northwestern Reporter (1981-1997), and grew into a substantial magazine. Together the two publications ran for nearly a half century, chronicling everything from the Law School’s sponsorship of the first-ever conference of law reviews in 1949 to a 1996 program commemorating the efforts of Law School faculty and students in overturning the wrongful death penalty conviction of Rolando Cruz.

In 2012, the magazine made a comeback with a new name, Northwestern Law Reporter (2012-    ) and is currently in production.
