Washington and Lee Top 500 Journals

Washington and Lee School of Law developed a Law Journal Rankings Project to give scholars a resource to locate journals by subject, country or publication, or ranking (where available), to display journal editorial information, and to facilitate an author’s article submission to those journals. The project currently ranks journals based on citation data from a 2010-2017 survey period. The site is updated annually, to include data up through the preceding completed calendar year.

HeinOnline contains 491 of the top 500 journals. The following Wiley journals are included in this comprehensive list:

  1. American Business Law Journal: This faculty-edited, double-blind peer-reviewed journal publishes top-quality law review articles that make a scholarly contribution to all areas of law that impact business theory and practice. Legal scholars who are well-versed in the relevant specialty area have selected articles that are original, thorough, important, and timely. Faculty editors assure the authors’ contribution to scholarship is evident. The journal aims to elevate legal scholarship and inform responsible business decisions.
  2. Family Court Review: For more than five decades, Family Court Review has served as an interdisciplinary communication forum for judges, attorneys, mediators, and professionals in mental health and human services who are concerned with the improvement of all aspects of the family court system. The Review brings comprehensive coverage of family court practice, theory, research, and legal opinion. It includes peer-edited articles by distinguished judges, attorneys, and other family court specialists covering timely information on real-world issues.
  3. Journal of Empirical Legal Studies: This peer-edited, peer-refereed interdisciplinary journal fills a gap in the legal and social science literature that has often left scholars, lawyers, and policymakers without basic knowledge of legal systems. It publishes high-quality, empirically orientated articles of interest to scholars in a diverse range of law and law-related fields. Always timely and provocative, studies published in the JELS have been covered in leading news outlets such as the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Economist, Forbes Magazine, and USA Today.
  4. Law & Society Review: The Review is a peer-edited publication for work bearing on the relationship between society and the legal process, including articles or notes of interest to the research community in general, new theoretical developments, results of empirical studies, and reviews and comments on the field or its methods of inquiry. It welcomes work from any tradition of scholarship concerned with the cultural, economic, political, psychological, or social aspects of law and legal systems.
