Katz Revisited: Spring Issues Delayed:
New Teaching Law Review in Disarray?
Fellows Arrive

By Randy Phillips
A former public defender, an
ex-prosecutor, a one-time legal aid
attorney and the admissions officer
of a prominent New England law
school. What they all have in com-
mon is participation in Harvard's
Legal Methods program - the first
year student's introduction to the
terra incognita of the process of
lawyering.
Launched in the 1950s, Legal
Methods is now undergoing an in-
tensive faculty review that could
lead to wholesale change. But all
th  new LM instructors and the
program's new administrative di-
rector, HLS Admissions Director
Patricia A. Lydon, agree the pro-
gram is - or can be - a vital part
of the law school experience.
I feel very strongly that Har-
vard    should   keep    Legal
Methods, said teaching fellow
Fred Moss, who worked last
year in HLS's clinical program
for 2L's and 3L's.
All I can do is look back to when
I was a first-year student and say,

Ask for it at the library. You won't get it. For the first time in recent
memory, the Harvard Law Review has fallen significantly behind its
schedule of publication.
The last issue to appear in print was dated April, 1976 and that issue
appeared two months late. At the time the Record went to print, the May
issue was not yet published.
Contacted by the Record, Susan Estrich, newly elected Review presi-
dent, admitted that it's unusual for us to have ended up this far behind.
Dean Albert M. Sacks stated that he could not really say when an
issue had been this late before. Sacks, too, thought it was quite un-
usual.
The dean has made a number of inquiries to the Review and maintains
that he has had explanations from them. Asked if these explanations
were satisfactory, he responded, I understand what has occurred and I
really don't think anyone is happy about it,
The Review normally publishes eight issues per year. The editorial
board is responsible for getting out the last two numbers of the previous
board's volume and the first six numbers of its own volume.
