Maryland Law Review, the flagship for the journal of the law school, is the first-ever publication of the law school’s legal theory and practice, and is a wonderful resource for law students and those interested in law.
Maryland Law Review is a terrific resource for law students. It provides readers with an excellent collection of essays by leading thought-leaders in their fields along with a review section that is just as much of a showcase for the work of the authors as it is for their findings.
The section that I’m most excited about in my own review is the review of the “Torts” section. The “Torts” section is one of the only sections of the journal dedicated to writing about legal theory. It is the only place in the legal journal where you can see what a law school professor is actually thinking about, which is a bit concerning.
The Torts section covers a wide spectrum of topics that are of interest to law students as well as seasoned attorneys. One of the most important issues covered is the role of “public authority” — the power the government has by virtue of its constitution to impose penalties on wrongdoers.
The article, while it is full of interesting and useful information, is still a bit too legalistic. It also contains a few grammatical errors. For example, the article discusses the issue of privacy and the “right to be forgotten” but the word “privacy” is spelled “privacy” where there should be an “h” and the word “right” should be spelled “right”.
I’ve found in my years of law school that the key to writing well is not in the language of the law itself but in the way you phrase and explain it. If your law students come to you saying, “You need to define the law of privacy?” you need to say, “We have a very complicated legal question here, and I need to explain what privacy is. You may not think this is important, but I have to explain it to you.
maryland law review is an online magazine that’s been around for nearly 20 years. The content is the same it’s always been, but the format has changed to focus more on legal articles. The articles are based on interviews with attorneys and judges, so even though it’s still a law journal, the articles are specifically focused on legal issues.
You can read an entire legal article from a lawyer, but its not the same as reading from a judge. A judge will give a legal opinion and explain whether something is legal or not. A lawyer will give a legal opinion and explain how to apply it to a specific situation. Its still the same piece of writing, but its the format that makes it special.
To start off a legal article, its going to state the case law and then put that case law in a context. For instance, the first article on the topic of “Is a man’s penis a right or an offense?” stated that “a woman has a right to control her own body and have the right to engage in sexual intercourse without her husband’s consent.
If you were to study an article that is a legal analysis of a legal situation, you would notice that it is not the same article as before. Now, it may sound like a contradiction, but this is not unusual. When you study a law, the same laws and rules are in use each time you study it. The law may have changed, but the rules of the law are the same.
