  1. Congratulations to Dean Berman and Touro for developing an impressive online journal devoted to today’s significant legal education issues. As the legal academy begins to devote more scholarly attention to teaching and learning, it is important to have multiple ways to disseminate that information. This journal is a great resource to all of us who are interested in cutting edge research about legal education.
