About CR-CL

The Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review (CR-CL) is the nation’s leading progressive law journal. Founded in 1966 as an instrument to advance personal freedoms and human dignities, CR-CL seeks to catalyze progressive thought and dialogue through publishing innovative legal scholarship and from various perspectives and in diverse fields of study.

In recent years, CR-CL has published articles by professors, practitioners, and students on topics including zoning the homeless, political lawyering, and the right to revolution. These and other subjects continue to be some of the most exciting and rapidly developing areas of the law, and we believe that the dialogue provided by CR-CL and other progressive journals will help to shape the future.

We regret that CR-CL cannot provide legal advice or referrals. For information on Harvard University admissions, please click here. We welcome submissions of manuscripts, as well as ideas for comments and articles.
