Four May 2012 graduates had comments published in the latest edition of the McGeorge Law Review, Volume 43, Issue 4.

Megan Cosgrove Sammut wrote "The Trojan House of Interstate Wine Shipment," which looks at the decades-long trade war over the interstate shipment of wine amidst a collision of the Twenty-first Amendment, the Commerce Clause, and a 2005 Supreme Court decision.

Daniel Cucchi authored "Quantifying an Uncertain Future: The Demands of the California Environmental Quality Act and the Challenge of Climate Change Analysis," which advocates a statewide standard by the legislature to curtail regional air quality district litigation.

Abigail Maurer contributed "Searching for Sense in Serna: The Sixth Amendment Right to a Speedy Trial in California Misdemeanor Cases," which examines the confusion surrounding appellate decisions regarding the presumption of prejudice in trial delays.

Rebekah Morrissey wrote "Avoiding the Rabbit Hole: Formulating Better Requirements for Domestic Violence-Based Asylum Cases," which addresses the glaring lack of clarity that currently exists in asylum law.
