"law students who'd rather make a name for themselves than make law review"
I do not quite understand why it has to be a mutually exclusive proposition. Your aim seems to be to start a dialogue with somewhat different purposes than law reviews. For example, I'm assuming the content on this blog will be more concise than most law review articles. Also, due to the fact that the web is instant, this project will be able to address legal issues with a timeliness that a print journal simply cannot. In short, I think that law students (and judges, practioners, et al.) can embrace both the new blogging form and the traditional journal form, acknowledging that both media, like all things in life, have both positive and negative attributes.

Yes. You're absolutely right. And, I might add that this blogging forum on the interwebnet might also provide an opportunity for a modicum of humor, which traditional Law Review is sometimes at pains to recognize. :-)

Kevin

great idea. I'll definately follow this project.

I heard that same exact thing when I wrote on to law review in 1985. I was told that within the next 5 years, there would be no more need for law reviews - this told to me by a state court justice. 20 years later, here they are.

The answer is blawgs will not kill the law review, they will democratize them. What will also happen is law reviews will have to face up to the reality that what they print has little to do with the practice or business of law. Law reviews, like the mainstream media, will remain, however their exclusive hold on the intellectual development of the profession, is dead.

A great law review article on exactly this topic can be found at SOUTH TEXAS LAW REVIEW AT FIFTY: LOOKING BACK AND LOOKING AHEAD by Craig Estlinbaum at 46 S. Tex. L. Rev. 25, I am cited at FN 37.
