The Southern California Law Review is pleased to announce the launch of its new online companion, Postscript. Other top law schools have added online companions, and the Law Review finds these new mediums to be a developing and important component of legal scholarship. Postscript permits us to publish a wider variety of material than we can accommodate in our printed journal. Postscript is intended to enhance legal scholarship by providing a forum where academics, practitioners, and students can respond to articles published in the Law Review and to recent legal developments in a concise and expedited format.
Postscript invites two categories of submissions. First, Postscript publishes responses to articles published in the Law Review. Second, Postscript publishes commentaries on legal developments and significant court decisions. We issue topic prompts for commentaries. In addition, authors are free to submit commentaries on other topics.
Postscript utilizes a more expedited production process than the Law Review. Thus, we encourage responses and commentaries under 3,000 words and lightly footnoted. Academics, judges, practitioners, and students are free to submit pieces of original scholarship to Postscript.
