The L. Rev: The Law Review Experience in American Legal Education

Paperback
This important work is a three part study that includes a legal and historical review of the unique place of law reviews in American legal education as well as the nature and stature of the reviews and the varying careers the top reviews have had in the 20th century. Thirdly Gutterman has written of his own law review career with a mordant and fascinating eye on the extremes of legal opinion (and behavior) a deadline can bring. The author also discusses the effects of the two major writing competitions specifically devoted to law review writing. The study includes an extensive discussion of plagiarism and other abuses found in L. Rev life.
