From the Editors


   We are pleased to present a provocative issue for your reading pleasure.
The issue begins with ten diverse perspectives from a symposium on The Fu-
ture of Legal Scholarship. We are grateful to Robin West who spearheaded
the idea for the symposium, to the AALS for its sponsorship, to Dean Jeremy
Paul and Professor Margaret Woo and their colleagues who hosted the sym-
posium at Northeastern University School of Law in Spring 2oi6, and to the
distinguished scholars who participated in the symposium and whose papers
we are pleased to publish here.
   In our regular Articles section, Professor Andrew Kerr advocates the virtues
for both reader and author of Writing the Short Paper-an article that inter-
sects well with the symposium theme by opening up possibilities for alterna-
tive forms and styles for effective legal scholarship.
   Addressing the well-being of law students, Professors Jerome Organ,
David Jaffe, and Katherine Bender. Ph.D., present Suffering in Silence, an
article that provides and analyzes the data from a 2014 survey of law students
conducted at fifteen schools. The paper documents several possible causes of
heightened distress among law students and outlines some of the particular
obstacles that deter law students from seeking appropriate help.
   In a review essay-Christopher Columbus Langdell and the Public Law
Curriculum- Professor Peter Strauss presents a masterly and critical account
of the development and present state of the teaching materials for Administra-
tive Law courses in most U.S. law schools. In reviewing the leading casebooks,
past and present, he particularly faults the authors and editors for excessive
attention to the subject ofjudicial review of regulatory actions and inadequate
attention to legislative and internal agency process and norms, or to the skills
all contemporary practitioners need for practice before agencies. This essay is
key reading for any teacher of Administrative Law and other regulatory sub-
jects.
   Finally, we close the issue with Professor Michael Dorf's review of Judge
Richard A. Posner's recent book, Divergent Paths: he Academy and the Jiudiciay
and a Response to the review by Judge Posner. If for no other reason than the
contemporary domestic political controversy-and misunderstandings- about
the proper role of the judiciary, all law teachers and deans should be interested
in and concerned with improving education and training for members of the
judiciary. We hope the Review and the Response inspire further deliberation
and debate on this important task.
