The Journal of Legal Education (JLE) addresses issues of importance to legal educators, including curriculum development, teaching methods, and scholarship. Published since 1948, it is an outlet for emerging areas of scholarship and teaching. The journal is now under the editorial leadership of Northeastern University School of Law and the University of Washington School of Law. Last year, AALS launched a new website for the JLE. The site includes subscription, submission, and copyright information, and serves as a repository for current and past issues of the journal.
The JLE released its Autumn issue this month. This issue includes research and analysis on “The Future of Legal Scholarship.” Articles include:
The Autumn issue also features two research articles: “Writing the Short Paper” by Andrew Jensen Kerr, and “Suffering in Silence: The Survey of Law Student Well-Being and the Reluctance of Law Students to Seek Help for Substance Use and Mental Health Concerns” by Jerome M. Organ, David B. Jaffe, and Katherine M. Bender.
The “Review Essay: Christopher Columbus Langdell and the Public Law Curriculum” by Peter L. Strauss and Michael C. Dorf’s “Book Review of ‘Divergent Paths: The Academy and the Judiciary’ by Richard A. Posner” (with a response from Judge Posner) round out the issue.
