This current issue of the Review is December 2011, the second issue of academic year 2011-2012 (Volume 125). Articles in this issue are written by such recognized scholars as Jamal Greene (writing on notorious or anti-canonical Supreme Court cases such as Plessy and Lochner), Orin Kerr (on Fourth Amendment theory), and Michael Klarman (reviewing a new book on the Constitutional Convention). Student contributions feature Notes on the John Dewey model of democracy and administrative agencies, and on breaching international trade law. Case Notes discuss recent decisions on such topics as civil procedure, tort law, patent law, constitutional law (on transgender prisoners and on firing ranges), stem cell research funding, and corporate immunity.
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.
