Goodbye to Law Reviews – Revisited, 48 VA. L. REV. 279 (1962)


Twenty-five years ago Professor Rodell, as part of a series of articles on the value of law reviews appearing in the first issue of Volume 23 of the Review, wrote his "last law review article." To celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of that "last" article, which did, incidentally acquire a certain amount of fame, or possibly notoriety, the editors asked Professor Rodell to give an account of his present-day impressions of law reviews. Offered here is his original article, together with his recent "supplement," not only as a humorous change of pace from the usual law review make-up, but also for the poignant remarks they contain on law review make-up and style, legal writing, and scholarship in general.
