Abstract

Legal scholarship lies at the heart of the world of legal academics and law schools. Our working days are spent reading it, discussing it and "doing" it. Law reviews are perhaps the most important means of disseminating legal scholarship. It is the relationship between law reviews and legal scholarship which will be the concern of this paper. In essence I will argue that too much legal writing of dubious worth is being published and that there are substantial costs attached to this unnecessary writing. In conclusion I will outline a proposal to deal with this very real problem.
