Lawreviewforum1Dan Solove has announced in this post a very intriguing new endeavor at Concurring Opinions, entitled "Law Review Forum Project."  Here are the basics from Dan's announcement:

I am very pleased to announce a new project here at Concurring Opinions – the Law Review Forum Project. We will be hosting online forums for several law reviews.   Increasingly, law reviews are creating online forums as companions to their regular law review issues. These forums contain very short response pieces, essays, debates, and other works that attempt to bridge the gap between regular legal scholarship and the blogosphere....  Throughout the year, each law review will periodically post forum essays here at Concurring Opinions.  We are not requiring an exclusive license, so participating law reviews can also cross-post at their own websites.

We see this as a mutually-beneficial arrangement. We can bring great content to our blog, and law reviews can reach our significant audience without the pressures of having to build and maintain an online readership or of having to produce content with regularity.

Law reviews currently with and without existing forums will be participating. Thus far, the following law reviews have agreed to participate:

* Harvard Law Review
* Virginia Law Review
* Michigan Law Review
* University of Pennsylvania Law Review
* Northwestern Law Review
* UCLA Law Review
* George Washington Law Review

In the near future, we hope to be expanding the list of participating law reviews.

Very interesting.  I look forward to seeing this project unfold and also seeing if Concurring Opinions will lose some of its distinctiveness if it ends up becoming a regular conduit for online forums for many law reviews.

I don't think that we will lose our distinctiveness. When fully running, we'd like/hope to see a law-review post a week (out of an average of 10-20 author generated posts). But, I suppose it is possible...
