Comment: The above works in progress -- born out of experience in the topic involved -- focus on practical legal subjects, but the scholarship effort/content is also emphasized (crediting prior relevant works of others that have some expertness on matter (e.g., professors, lawyers, citizens) and government institutions (e.g., Congress, commissions, state legislatures)). See, e.g., Adam Liptak, Keep Those Briefs Brief, Literary Justices Advise, New York Times A12 (May 21, 2011) [The justices had very little good to say about articles published in law reviews.. "What the academy is doing, as far as I can tell," Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. said is largely of no use or interest to people who actually [sic] practice law."]. For more on this subject, e.g., click here [Justice Roberts on law reviews: he doesn't pay much attention to academic legal writing; law review articles are “more abstract” than practical and not “particularly helpful for practitioners and judges.”]; here [McCrate report]; here [at Blog at WordPress.comon McCrate report, e.g., majority of legal academics out of touch with the reality of legal practice and inappropriately preoccupied with producing what the author terms “impractical” scholarship]; here [Lexis-Nexis synopsis ofBrent E. Newton, Preaching What They Don't Practice: Why Law Faculties' Preoccupation with Impractical Scholarship and Devaluation of Practical Competencies Obstruct Reform in the Legal Academy, 62 S.C. L. Rev. 105 (Fall (Nov.), 2010): e.g., the academy -- re preparation of law students to enter profession and type of scholarship its professoriate is producing -- has lost its practical moorings.];  here [law reviews; impractical scholarship]; and here [law reviews; impractical].
