“Law review” denotes a law-related publication, edited either by law students, law faculty, or both, which is sponsored or supported at least in part by a law school, which appears at least once each calendar year in a permanent form … Over the past two years a small body of literature has built up in the United States in relation to the future of the traditional law review in the age of the internet and technological change. A paper by Bernard Hibbitts, entitled “Last Writes? Re-assessing the Law Review in the Age of Cyberspace” was instrumental in provoking this discussion. Hibbitts’s main thesis is that the dominant form of the North American law review not only should, but is destined to give way in the next decade to a new era of electronic selfpublishing.
