Abstract

Short papers have been relegated to secondary status primarily because of their length. But many scholarly papers of under 10,000 words have had monumental impact in legal thought. I argue for a reassessment of the short paper's value and offer some prescriptions for assimilating more openness to the short paper going forward.

Keywords: short paper, plus piece, legal scholarship, article length, short essay, scholarship
