NYT on law reviews

by Walter Olson on October 22, 2013

This time the critical coverage, by Adam Liptak, triggers a fair amount of pushback from legal academics defending the student-edited review format. My two cents last year here.

Frankly, I have found most law reviews to be full of unoriginal articles that are rehashes of things already said in one way or another. I have also noticed that they tend to be biased toward a liberal point of view; try to find a major law review with an article in support of capital punishment, against gay marriage or affirmative action. There is also a fundamental rule governing law review article: the sum of the footnotes must equal or exceed the number of the pages in the article squared.
