The Harvard Law Review is a student-run organization whose primary purpose is to publish a journal of legal scholarship. Student editors make all editorial and organizational decisions. Aside from serving as an important academic forum for legal scholarship, the Review has two other goals. First, the journal is designed to be an effective research tool for practicing lawyers and students of the law. Second, it provides opportunities for Review members to develop their own editing and writing skills. Accordingly, each issue contains pieces by student editors as well as outside authors. The Review generally publishes articles by professors, judges, and practitioners and solicits reviews of important recent books from recognized experts. Most student writing takes the form of Notes, Recent Cases, Recent Legislation, and Book Notes.
This issue of the Review is April 2012, the sixth issue of academic year 2011-2012 (Volume 125). Ebook formatting includes active TOC and linked notes.
