Beginning with its first issue in 1950, Res Gestae has continuously served as the newspaper of the Law School; a publication written by and for the law students. It publishes approximately twice a month and is commonly known as the RG. The title has its origins in the first student publication at the Law School, a yearbook from 1895. Res Gestae is a rule of evidence applying to expressions made at the time an act occurs, where there is neither time nor motive for misrepresentation. Accordingly, the RG exists to speak frankly and tell it like it is, whether it is news, commentary, arts features, announcements and the like.
Journalistic experience is neither a requirement nor common among all writers and editors, but talent, dedication, and an eye toward serving the readers and improving communication at the Law School are.
