                     INTRODUCING THE

          STANFORD LAW REVIEW ONLINE


             Jonathan Abel* & James Freedman**

    In 1948, Warren Christopher began the inaugural issue of the Stanford Law
Review with a note establishing the purpose of the journal.1 He set out the twin
goals that have guided us ever since: the Law Review would seek to provide a
valuable publication platform to lawyers and scholars, and an incomparable
educational experience to law students.
    In addition to outlining these goals, Christopher spelled out the following
principles: care, precision, and impartiality are vital; the economic, political,
and social forces which mold the law deserve special emphasis; investigation of
developing legal problems in advance of their widespread litigation is to be en-
couraged; readability is a necessity.
    Today, in announcing the launch of the Stanford Law Review Online, we
still aspire to those high standards. This new site will offer a flexible outlet for
the publication of short, original pieces of scholarship and commentary on
timely legal topics. The aim is to produce pieces of law-review quality, with an
Internet-quick turnaround between submission and publication. And while we
have made  tentative decisions about the nature of the publication, perhaps the
most important feature of the Stanford Law Review Online will be its ability to
evolve over time. We hope  readers and authors will embrace this new form,
and let us know how we can improve it moving forward.
