As most people know, it generally takes about a year to get published in a main line law review. Recently, a number of schools added online law review journals. They sometimes allow original scholarship, but are sometimes limited to filing a responsive piece. They also permit the publication of much shorter articles (under 3000 words) which permits timely publication. They are something more than a blog, but less than a full law review.
I recently discovered that there is no online directory of these important new journals. Therefore, I decided to create one.

Allowing Larger Articles (3000 words)
1. Side Bar (Columbia Law School)
2. In Brief (Virginia Law School)

If you have any to add, please comment below. Comment only once as all comments are held until I review them. Note, this list excludes technology law related journals, of which there is a large number. This list only includes journals that commit to publish within 3 months or less.
