I recently noted a law review article by JO’C. And the upcoming volume 189 of the Military Law Review will include my article about the actual operation of the military death penalty system. My reading this evening will be Professor James Liebman’s recent law review article, Slow Dancing with Death: The Supreme Court and Capital Punishment, 1963–2006, 107 Col. L. Rev. 1 (2007).
But a recent New York Times article tells us that law review articles are becoming increasingly irrelevant. What’s your view? Are military law journals, which are much more practical than theoretical, more relevant than the typical law review article? Are relevance and practicality virtues or vices? Discuss.
