1 Law & Phil. 1 (1982)

handle is hein.journals/lwphil1 and id is 1 raw text is: EDITORIAL

Law and philosophy have traditionally shared many interests, both
substantive and methodological. The extent of interchange between
the two fields has varied considerably in different eras. In recent
years there has been much interest in increasing the level of such
interchange. There is a growing perception that many issues can
best be understood if they are approached utilizing the results of
research in both law and philosophy. There are many scholars in
each field who have mastered relevant portions of the other, either
directly through training in both, or more informally through
individual research. This group of scholars has taken the lead in
developing and defining the areas of interaction. Journals in either
of the two fields are not always sympathetic to work by scholars
in the other, partly due to format and partly due to differences in
approach. Hence scholars tend to publish in journals in their own
field, which to some extent inhibits change.
Law and Philosophy seeks to foster and facilitate exchange
between legal scholars and philosophers. This journal will publish
papers ranging from short discussion pieces to sustained essays.
Every attempt will be made to prohibit format requirements from
inhibiting exchange. We will develop a book review section and a
'review of the literature' section that will help readers stay abreast
of relevant work in law and philosophy. The editorial board, which
will guide the development of the journal, will be balanced
between legal scholars and philosophers, with several members
bridging the two areas. We hope the results of such interaction
will be available to an even wider audience in both law and philos-
ophy and to those concerned with public policy and legal practice.
Law and Philosophy will be open to all approaches in both areas
and to work in any of the major legal traditions - common law,
civil law, or the socialist tradition. The editors encourage papers
