The Utah Law Review Society was founded in 1948 with the purpose of serving the interests of students, the bench, the Utah State Bar and surrounding areas. Since then, its scope has expanded to include legal issues of importance both domestically and internationally. The Utah Law Review is a student-run organization, with all editorial and organizational decisions made by student-editors enrolled at the S.J. Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah.
The benefits of participating as a member of Law Review are well known. Students are able to sharpen their writing and editing abilities as well as enhancing their critical thinking, analytical and research skills. Involvement in the program also requires a high level of discipline and time management.
The time commitment can make it difficult for some law students to participate in Law Review and fund their education. This endowment provides an annual scholarship to a student at the beginning of their 2L or 3L year who is a member of the Utah Law Review staff. Additional preference will be given to a student from an underrepresented population.
Kelley Michael Gale (’79) appreciated his experience as Editor in Chief of the Utah Law Review and was interested in providing the opportunity for students who might not have the ability to participate due to financial need. In early 2018, he established the Utah Law Review Opportunity Fund at the S.J. Quinney College of Law. Gale recently retired after 38 years with Latham & Watkins. He served as the global Co-chair of the firm’s Air Quality & Climate Change Practice. He also established the firm’s Project Development & Finance Practice. His practice centered on the representation of both private and public sector clients in the development, regulation and financing of renewable energy projects and capital intensive infrastructure projects.
