Emphasis in the past has been placed on three major areas: legal aspects of the computer industry, legal ramifications of the use of computers and other special technologies, and the application of computers and new technologies to the legal profession. Other recent topics include communications and environmental regulation. The journal is published semiannually, and a large part of it is written by students. Staff members are selected primarily through a writing competition, but members also may join by writing an article suitable for publication in the journal.

It is the oldest legal periodical in the United States focusing exclusively on the field of women's rights law. The journal examines legislative developments, significant federal and state court cases, judicial doctrines, litigation strategies, the lives and careers of prominent women jurists, the legal profession, and other areas of law or public policy relating to women`s rights.
