Harvard Law Review adds eBook editions: Kindle, Nook & iPad formats

Posted by Alan Childress

The newest issue of the Harvard Law Review (number 7, May) is now available in ebook formats at Amazon Kindle (and Amazon UK), at Barnes & Noble for Nook, and on iPad using such apps or soon at iTunes bookstore. It's out of the Quid Pro Books digital project [as regular readers of this blog might guess]. My recollection is that there was a time -- before technology and budget cuts -- when many individuals, not just libraries, ordered copies of favorite law reviews (or had issues routed to them) and read each issue like a book. In a way, the ereader technology puts it back together again as a whole and makes the volume easily available to individual readers, even on the go (or especially on the go, for trains and planes), and on devices tiny and large. Having HLR available this way is in a sense "traditional," or at least could become a new tradition to non-institutional readers, I believe.

Number 7's contents:

Article, "Article III and the Scottish Judiciary," by James E. Pfander and Daniel D. Birk
HLR May2011 7 USE FOR nOOK BEST
Book Review, "Constitutional Alarmism," by Trevor W. Morrison

Note, "A Justification for Allowing Fragmentation in Copyright"  

Note, "Taxing Partnership Profits Interests: The Carried Interest Problem"

Recent Case, "Corporate Law — Principal’s Liability for Agent’s Conduct"

Recent Case, "Administrative Law — Retroactive Rules"
 
Recent Case, "Federal Preemption of State Law — Implied Preemption"

Recent Case, "Labor Law — LMRA"

Recent Legislation, "Corporate Law — Securities Regulation"

Recent Publications

UPDATE: Nice squib from Paul Caron at TaxProf.

For people on the move this is good news. You will have a hard time finding issues of anything that don't have an ebook format to compliment it. Canada already has most of thier legal books in eBook format for desktop consumption.
