Harvard Law Review joins Stanford Law Review in making available issues produced by Quid Pro Books. Quid Pro Books became the exclusive eBook publisher of Stanford Law Review with the publication of the December 2010 issue (vol. 63, no. 1).
Quid Pro Books was launched last year by Tulane Law's Conrad Meyer III Professor of Civil Procedure and Legal Profession Blog co-editor Alan Childress.
