The Harvard Law Review is the Word of Law. America's premier student-edited law review derives much of its reputation from its premier student-written features. Written in a coporate yet incorporeal voice, Harvard's Supreme Court and Development notes have epitomized the fiction that student-written legal commentary should be regarded as a collective product.

Throughout it all the Review has never forgotten its humble origins as the brainchild of a small group of Harvard students. Till now. The Harvard Law Review's 1999 Developments note, dedicated to "The Law of Cyberspace," 112 Harv. L. Rev. 1574, trashed a half-century of tradition by breaking into the first-person singular.

Behold the new covenant, cast in the hallowed pages of the Harvard Law Review: "Le droit, c'est moi."

Keywords: Harvard Law Review, Developments, Supreme Court, student writing, cyberspace, Coughlin, Mark, legal scholarship
