The first issue of 2014 features articles and essays from internationally recognized legal and economics scholars, including an extensive Symposium on “Revelation Mechanisms and the Law.” Topics include voting options and strategies to reveal preferences, corporate governance, regulatory intensity, tort calculations of risk, audits, mandatory disclosure of choices, partitioning interests in land, and shopping for expert witnesses.

In addition, Issue 1 includes an article, “Libertarian Paternalism, Path Dependence, and Temporary Law,” by Tom Ginsburg, Jonathan S. Masur & Richard H. McAdams. Applications include smoking bans and seat belt laws. Also included is a student Comment, “Too Late to Stipulate: Reconciling Rule 68 with Summary Judgments,” by Channing J. Turner, and a Book Review, “Common Good and Common Ground: The Inevitability of Fundamental Disagreement,” by Rebecca L. Brown, reviewing ‘Ordered Liberty: Rights, Responsibilities, and Virtues.’

The University of Chicago Law Review first appeared in 1933, thirty-one years after the Law School offered its first classes. Since then the Law Review has continued to serve as a forum for the expression of ideas of leading professors, judges, and practitioners, as well as students, and as a training ground for University of Chicago Law School students, who serve as its editors and contribute Notes, Comments, and other research. Principal articles and essays are authored by accomplished legal and economics scholars. Quality ebook formatting includes active TOC, linked notes, active URLs in notes, and all the charts, tables, and formulae found in the original print version.
