The Harvard Law Review is a student-run organization whose primary purpose is to publish a journal of legal scholarship. The Review comes out monthly from November through June and has roughly 2000 pages per volume. The organization is formally independent of the Harvard Law School. Student editors make all editorial and organizational decisions. This issue of the Review is May 2013, the 7th issue of academic year 2012-2013. Principal articles are written by internationally recognized legal scholars, and student-editors contribute substantial research in the form of Recent Case commentaries, a Note, and surveys of recent publications.
