Business Law Review



The Rutgers Business Law Review (RBLR) is a scholarly journal published by an independent student group at Rutgers School of Law - Newark. RBLR focuses on business law and related topics, and is published semi-annually.



RBLR was formerly known as the Rutgers Bankruptcy Law Journal, and later as the Rutgers Business Law Journal. As of May 31, 2011, RBLR acquired its current name. In concert with the evolution of its name, RBLR has expanded from its initial focus on bankruptcy into a broad interdisciplinary business law journal that provides an academic forum for serious research, analysis and exploration of current legal trends affecting business. Past issues have featured articles covering antitrust, bankruptcy, corporate, contract, real estate, securities, tax, and administrative law, among other topics.
