University of Louisville Law Review Presents Best Practices in Editing at National Conference of Law Reviews

The University of Louisville Law Review is being recognized this week for best practices and innovation in editing by the National Conference of Law Reviews. The outgoing and incoming Editors in Chief are representing the Law Review at this year's conference in Lansing, Michigan.  NCLR is recognizing the Law Review's Editing Submission Sheet (ESS), a standardized editing form created by this year's Editorial Board, for its effectiveness in streamlining the editing process. The Law Review presented to an audience of approximately 80 representatives of journals from throughout the nation about the ESS and other steps taken this year to improve the efficiency of the editing process. Following the presentation, at least 25 journals expressed direct interest in at least partially modeling their editing procedures after the University of Louisville Law Review. The presentation will be published in this year's NCLR Best Practices Manual, which will be distributed to hundreds of law journals throughout the country. Congratulations to the Editorial Board and Staff of the University of Louisville Law Review on their hard work in continuing to set a positive example for other journals, and especially to Spencer Brooks, Senior Notes Editor, who was instrumental in the conception and implementation of the ESS.
