About

John E. Howe arrived as Washburn’s new dean in 1959 and one of his priorities was to improve the school’s writing program. By late September that year, the Law Review Board reported that it planned to produce an intramural journal that would be mimeographed. The Law Journal Board, with David Wheeler ’60 and Robert  L. Roberts ’61 as Editor-in-Chief for one semester each, produced two issues. Subsequently, the two issues were spiral bound with a cover and Editors’ Comment as Volume 0 of the Washburn Law Journal.

Dean Howe’s budget for academic year 1960-61 included funding to print the journal professionally. That year’s Board of Editors published the first two issues of Volume 1, covering 325 pages. Volume 1 ultimately included four issues, published over two years by successive staffs. The issues published during academic year 1961-62 included 308 pages, plus an index. Thereafter, until 1966, two issues each year comprised a volume.
