Harvard Law Review, #2, Dec. 2013: Honoring Dworkin, ‘Lost’ Essay by Hart on Discretion, Article on Media Leaks, and Notes & Recent Cases

The December 2013 issue of the Harvard Law Review is dedicated to the memory of Ronald Dworkin, with In Memoriam essays offered by Richard Fallon, Jr., Charles Fried, John C.P. Goldberg, Frances Kamm, Frank Michelman, Martha Minow, and Laurence Tribe.

The issue features an article by David Pozen entitled “The Leaky Leviathan: Why the Government Condemns and Condones Unlawful Disclosures of Information.” The issue also includes essays by Nicola Lacey and Geoffrey Shaw examining a previously lost writing by H.L.A. Hart on discretion, as well as the publication of Hart’s essay, “Discretion,” itself, which he wrote while visiting at Harvard during 1956-1957.

Student Notes explore such subjects as regulation of the shadow banking system, vagueness and delegation in the CFAA, and the good faith exception to the exclusionary rule. In addition, student contributions explore Recent Cases on First Amendment commercial speech doctrine and pharmaceutical marketing, school finance under state law, duty of a school to protect from bullying, warrantless search of cell phone data, and untimely raising of ineffective assistance of counsel in a habeas petition after counsel failure. A Recent Legislation summary explores restrictions on War Powers in the context of Guantanamo detainees, and a summary of Recent Legislative Debate involves the filibuster of a Texas abortion bill. Finally, there are also several summaries of Recent Publications.
