The Law and Politics Book Review is sponsored by the Law and Courts Section of the American Political Science Association.  Reviews are published frequently, and readers are notified by e-mail as new ones are available.  The Section has a membership of almost 900 and presently sends the Review to over 1,300 readers in 39 countries.  The electronic medium enables us to review almost every book about the legal process and politics, to do longer reviews than are usually published, and to make the reviews available within six months of our receipt of the book.


Reviews from 1990-2010 are archived at Lawcourts.org/LPBR while reviews since 2007 are available at lpbr.net

LPBR Reviewer Database

The LPBR commissions most reviews by drawing on a database of potential reviewers.  If you are interested in reviewing, or if your reviewing interests or contact information has changed, please take a few moments fill out our reviewing interest database form.
