CONFERENCE OF LAW REVIEWS
LAWRENCE KING AND RICHARD LIEB
THE Second National Conference of Law Reviews' was held at
the New York University School of Law on February 20-21, 1953.
Representing 31 law reviews from all parts of the country,- 81 editors
and staff members participated in the two-day meeting, the purpose
of which was to provide for the interchange of ideas with respect to
mutual editorial and personnel problems. The program consisted of
forum discussions, committee meetings, addresses, general sessions,
and, to further highlight the conclave, the delegates were invited to
attend the two-day Marbury v. Madison Sesquicentennial Celebration.3
An invaluable result of the conference was the recognition that
the same problems are shared by all law reviews. No attempt was
made to isolate the ideal solution to a particular problem since it
was believed most practicable to use the limited time for presentation
of all available solutions. Furthermore, regional and size differences
among the various reviews prevent the existence of a single solution
to a stated problem. Yet the very opportunity for open discussion,
with a concomitant recognition of the group responsibilities of law
reviews to the bench, the bar and legal education, points up the neces-
sity for continuing such gatherings in years to come.
