Workshop Description

The Durham Statement on Open Access to Legal Scholarship has generated much discussion in legal education because of its call for law schools to move toward electronic publication of their student-edited journals. This workshop is a follow-up to the Durham Statement, aimed primarily at student law review editors, and at law librarians, law review advisers, publishers, and all others who are interested in open access and legal publishing. The program will cover issues and best practices for law journals to consider as they move into electronic publishing. Morning Session speakers will include experts on open access in law and in law review publishing. Afternoon panels will include developers of electronic journal publishing platforms and technologists knowledgeable regarding access and preservation issues for legal scholarship. The workshop will be webcast live and posted online afterwards. No registration is needed for the webcast. Our webcast is scheduled to be streamed live through Duke University's ustream channel and via Real Player. On the day of the conference, an interface will be available on the conference website for remote sites to post questions and comments, and moderators will share some of these with participants. The workshop is co-sponsored by Duke Law School's J. Michael Goodson Law Library and the Center for the Study of the Public Domain, and the Harvard Law School Library. Michelle Pearse, Librarian for Open Access Initiatives and Scholarly Communication at Harvard, and Richard Danner, Rufty Research Professor of Law and Senior Associate Dean for Information Services at Duke, are organizing the event. For more information about the program and stipends available for law journal editors, contact Professor Danner.
