About

The Legal Workshop is a website providing a single online forum for cutting-edge legal scholarship from the top law journals in the country.

We hope you enjoy getting to know us, and we welcome your feedback.

Mission:

The Legal Workshop features “op-ed” versions of the articles published by the member journals. These concise and lively pieces are written for a generalist audience, combining the best elements of print and online publication.

Each Legal Workshop Editorial undergoes the same rigorous editorial treatment and quality screening as the journals’ print content, but readers are able to offer comments and esteemed academics have the option of submitting response pieces, which are checked for citations and substance.

By aggregating the work of multiple law reviews, The Legal Workshop is able to provide frequently updated content. New article-based content is posted every Monday and most Wednesdays and Fridays. The Legal Workshop provides a one-stop forum for readers wishing to stay abreast of contemporary legal scholarship.

Acknowledgments:

The generous pro bono work of David Sando, an attorney with Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, has been and continues to be essential to The Legal Workshop.

The idea for The Legal Workshop was originally conceived by Joe Ross, Volume 59 President of the Stanford Law Review. He and Erin Delaney, then Editor-in-Chief of the New York University Law Review, first solicited potential members for The Legal Workshop in the spring of 2007.

Editors at NYU and Stanford who have played a special role in carrying the torch include Billy Abbott, Zac Cox, Thomas Haymore, Ben Kingsley, Matt Lawrence, Lincoln Mayer, Michael Montaño, Sam Nitze, Sean Nuttall, William Rawson, and Ben Stoll.
