Publication of the Summer Issue culminates a successful year for the Law Review. This year, the publication was recognized for best practices and innovation in editing by the National Conference of Law Reviews (NCLR) and selected to host the NCLR's annual conference in March of 2015, which will bring between 250 and 350 journal editors and thousands of dollars in economic impact to Louisville. Finally, this month the Law Review will launch its new web presence, making its content more accessible and dynamic than ever before.

Volume 51 of the University of Louisville Law Review consists of 673 pages of content covering a wide range of legal and policy issues. One article published this year has already been cited in the Harvard Law Review.

None of these accomplishments would have been possible without the hard work and dedication of the Law Review Editorial Board and Staff, who have logged a cumulative total of 7,500 hours of work over the last year. The Editorial Board for Volume 51 wishes the incoming Board, which officially takes over on May 11, the best of luck next year.
