This Article proceeds by discussing 99 problems and solutions. The unusual format is an intentional counterpoise to traditional legal scholarship. A traditional law review article proceeds in three to five parts to address a handful of issues. But that format can misconstrue the nature and scope of critique and provides authors little room for multi-factor outside-the-box problem solving. Here, each of the nine thematically-organized sections identifies nine problems and offers a springboard response. Many of these suggestions are original and somewhat unorthodox, others are frequently proposed but rarely implemented. The Article and its unique format serve three goals. First, to aggregate and assess the spectrum of outsider and insider critique of traditional student-edited law reviews. Second, to serve as a tool for law review members, law school faculties, and university administrators to identify and anticipate problems. Third, as a guide for law school and law review stakeholders seeking realistic, pragmatic, and effective solutions.
