Abstract

Today’s technology permits students, academics in non-law fields and lay persons to be exposed to the political views, theories and philosophies of legal scholars. Law journals and their supporting institutions should provide background and context to this scholarly output by summarizing the published works and linking them, using devices such as QR codes, to readily understood, simply-expressed background materials. This effort will make the published scholarship accessible – at an education-appropriate level – to the inquiring reader. There is an essential element of social responsibility in the exercise.

Keywords: law journal, law review, QR code, legal scholarship
