Comparing the Features of the Top 50 Law Review Websites

I’ve compiled a comparison of distinguishing features of the Top 50 Law Review Websites during my tenure as Internet Publishing Editor for the Houston Law Review. When I undertook the position nearly a year ago, my main purpose was simply to see what other legal journals were doing with their websites and to formulate the best practices for my own. As the internet becomes increasingly important to the dissemination of legal research, I thought others might also benefit from a more comprehensive treatment. Hence the spreadsheet. The list was created from the most recent Washington and Lee Journal Rankings. Please feel free to e-mail me with errors or omissions. Also, feel free to reuse the data with my permission for any purpose you wish.

Steve Buyer (R-IN). “We can think of no better way for our young people to squander their postcollegiate aimlessness.” Congress is reportedly seeking further legislation that would provide for an additional nine months of grumbling over LSAT prep, and up to five years of whining about paying off student loan debt.
