Study: Law Review in Need of Reform

Judges, law professors, practicing attorneys and student editors alike believe that the current law review model needs reform, according to a new article published by Loyola University New Orleans College of Law and covered by the National Law Journal. The authors (comprised of a mix of psychology professors and doctoral students from the University of North Dakota, as well as several law professors from the Appalachian School of Law) queried 1,325 law professors, 338 student editors, 215 attorneys and 156 judges. They found that respondents think that current law review articles are too long and do not meet the needs of attorneys and judges, and that student editors should receive additional training. The ABA Journal has more on the story.
