Vandy LR's new venture: Roundtable

I recently rec'd this message from the good folks at Vanderbilt's Law Review, and thought I'd share this interesting development re: online scholarship and dissemination.

Last year, the Vanderbilt Law Review launched En Banc, an online companion to the Vanderbilt Law ReviewEn Banc primarily publishes responses to articles published in the printed journal. However, today En Banc is introducing a new feature, Roundtable, which seeks to fill a void currently existing in the world of legal scholarship. Roundtable will host a debate between prominent academics and practitioners on a notable case pending before the U.S. Supreme Court (or potentially a U.S. Court of Appeals) each semester...These debates will allow for participants to voice their views in a scholarly forum while the law is simultaneously being made at the highest levels.

For the first Roundtable, the editors of the Vanderbilt Law Review have selected Free Enterprise Fund v. PCAOB, a case that likely needs no introduction. Furthermore, five leading administrative and constitutional law professors are participating: Peter Strauss (Columbia), Hal Bruff (Colorado), Steven Calabresi (Northwestern), Gary Lawson (Boston University), and Rick Pildes (NYU). The format for the Roundtable is as follows. Recently, the Vanderbilt Law Review published online Prof. Strauss’s article summarizing the key issues surrounding the PCAOBcase and laying the groundwork for the forthcoming discussion. On Monday, November 2, original pieces on various facets of the case by Profs. Bruff, Calabresi, Lawson, and Pildes will be published. Finally, on Monday, December 7—coincidentally the same day that the Court will hear oral arguments for PCAOB—the Vanderbilt Law Review will publish response pieces by all five professors. All in all, these three series of articles will add new and unique high-level perspectives on such a significant case. 

Sounds neat. Also, feel free to check out VLR's brand-new website.
