Seattle University Law Review goes digital, adds archive
The Seattle University Law Review launched its online, open-access web archive over the summer. Now every work the Law Review has published in its 34-year history is available for free full-text download. In addition, new issues of the Law Review will be posted online as they are sent to press.
The website is a useful free asset for practitioners in Washington and beyond. The full-text searchable archive can be visited. In addition, alumni who wrote student Notes and Comments while on the Law Review can now link those works to online biographies at their firms.
Since the website's launch date, the Law Review has seen a steady and rapid increase in readership. Readers have downloaded more than 3,000 copies of articles, which represents an 850 percent increase to the Law Review's traditional print circulation.
The web archive also presents a unique opportunity to reflect on the Law Review's history of excellent legal scholarship. The words of Chief Justice Warren Burger, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and most recently, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor are all treasures to be found in the Law Review's new online archive.
