The Paradoxes of Legal Science
Author: Benjamin Cardozo
The Michigan Law Review began publication in 1902 and is the sixth oldest legal journal in the country. The Review originally was intended as a forum for the faculty of the Law Department to publish their legal scholarship. From its inception until 1940, the Review's student members worked under the direction of faculty members who served as Editor-in-Chief. In 1940, the first student Editor-in-Chief was selected. During the years that followed, student editors were given increasing responsibility and autonomy; today, the Review is run with no faculty supervision. Seven of each volume's eight issues ordinarily are composed of articles by legal scholars and practitioners, and notes written by the student editors. One issue in each volume is devoted to book reviews. Occasionally special issues are devoted to symposia or colloquia.
