Abstract

In public comments, Chief Justice Roberts reignited the battle over the value of published legal research. This foreword examines the controversy and proposes that the newly inaugurated general interest journal of the University of Massachusetts Law Review, considering the public service mission of the UMass Law School, will contribute importantly to the legal profession and society, even if editors choose articles that consider Kant's metaphysics, Bulgaria's Istoriya Slavyanobolgarskaya, or contemporary civil rights in the United States.

Keywords: legal research, legal scholarship

JEL Classification: K00, K49
