Journal of Appellate Practice and Process

University of Arizona Law

The Journal of Appellate Practice and Process provides a forum for creative thought and dialogue about the operation of appellate courts and their influence on the development of law. 

Beginning with Issue 1 of volume 21 (January 2021), The Journal moves from being a print, paid-subscriber publication to a free online-only model. 

University of Arizona Law acquired The Journal from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Bowen School of Law in summer 2020 and now partners with the National Institute for Trial Advocacy on publishing.

Since its founding in 1999, The Journal has published scores of important articles. Chief Justice William Rehnquist and Justices Stephen Breyer and John Paul Stevens of the United States Supreme Court have written for The Journal, as have many prominent federal and state appellate jurists. The Journal has also published the work of leading legal scholars from law schools across the country. Courts often refer to The Journal in their opinions, citing it over 100 times in 2019 alone.
