In this symposium issue essay, Dean Mulroy argues that the paperless trend in law reviews is inevitable and mostly salutary, given advantages in cost, speed, access, and environmental impact. This will likely not mean the demise of student-run journals, nor should it. Although student-run journals have drawbacks and the rise of peer-reviewed journals is beneficial, the student-run journal has several significant advantages.
