New Online Legal Magazine a "Refreshing Alternative" to Traditional Law Reviews

The Legal Workshop is a new online legal journal
that seeks to disseminate legal scholarship to a broad
audience of readers. The new endeavor is produced by
a consortium of academic law reviews: Stanford Law
Review, New York University Law Review,
Cornell Law Review, Duke Law Journal, Georgetown Law
Journal, Northwestern Law Review, and University of
Chicago Law Review.

According to the press release (4/21/2009), the new journal
"offers an engaging alternative to traditional academic articles
that run 30,000 words with footnotes," instead featuring short,
plain-English articles about legal issues and ideas, written by
an author whose related, full-length work of scholarship
is forthcoming in one of the participating law reviews."
