Published from 1995 to 2016, the Law and Business Review of the Americas (LBRA) is a peer-reviewed journal that was produced by the Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law's International Law Review Association.Each issue includes articles authored by leading scholars and practitioners that address key legal, business, economic, political, and social developments and issues within the Western Hemisphere. Priority is given to Hemispheric and regional integration efforts within the Western Hemisphere, their implementation, their future evolvement and expansion, and their overall impact on doing business in the Americas. Additionally, student-written updates analyze recent events within the journal's geographic and thematic purview.
LBRA, which began in 1995, is no longer published. Now, the student members of the board of editors and staff of the International Law Review Association publish The International Lawyer and the ABA International Section's Year in Review.
