The University of Chicago Business Law Review ("UChiBLR") was founded with two goals in mind: provide students and academics an opportunity to publish business law scholarship through The Law School and foster dialogue between practitioners, academics, regulators, and students interested in business law both in the United States and around the world. 

Our journal achieves its goals through various means. We maintain an active online forum for publication in the field (the Online Edition), publish an annual print volume with two issues, and host a biennial symposium that is selected and planned by the entire Journal membership over a two-year planning horizon. The first symposium focused on the works of Judge Frank Easterbrook of the 7th Circuit and Professor Dan Fischel, Senior Lecturer on Law and Business at The Law School, and their seminal work on corporate law published thirty years ago. Our inaugural issue comprised of articles from scholars that partook in this symposium included works from esteemed academics like Nobel laureate Oliver Hart, Lucian Bebchuk, and Leo Strine, former Chief Justice of the Delaware Supreme Court. Our 2024 symposium focused on the roles of corporations as political actors, seeking to answer questions raised at the intersection of free speech, election law, and corporate governance.
