The first edition of the Chicago-Kent Law Review was published in February of 1923. Conceived by the Class of 1925, its initial purpose was to serve as "the current expression of ideas, the class room work and discussion, the political campaign" for the Chicago-Kent College of Law.
This inaugural edition includes opening statements by Dean Webster H. Burke and Judge Henry Horner, and a message to alumni by Frederick A. Rowe, urging the Alumni Association to re-form after the devastation of World War I. The issue also includes a mention of the Chicago-Kent Bulletin, an earlier student publication discontinued due to the war. Special thanks is extended to its first editor, Edward J. Veasey (class of 1916), killed while fighting in France in 1918. Other sections include class notes, advertisement for The Transcript, and notes on the activities of Phi Delta Phi, Phi Alpha Delta, Delta Chi, and Nu Beta Epsilon. A "Woman's Page" details a short history of Kappa Beta Pi and features brief profiles of female members of the junior class. Activities of the Burke Debating Club and Chicago-Kent's basketball team are included, along with a section of "legal jokes."
