Washington Law Review

Article Title

Editor's Notes


Roy J. Morceri


Today, there are two distinct types of law reviews, the national and the local. The former reviews decisions and legal problems of every jurisdiction, and serves to apprise lawyers generally of recent legal developments. The latter deals with the problems of a single state as a source of information to the attorneys thereof. The Washinigton Law Review belongs to the latter category. As the vast majority of its subscribers are members of the Washington legal profession, it is considered desirable and proper that it be devoted primarily to the Washington lawyer. To this end, the recent decisions of every court that directly affects him, viz., the Washington and United States Supreme Courts, the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and the Federal District Courts for Washington, are studied and analyzed. Student comments emphasize Washington law. To serve out of state subscribers as well, the leading articles discuss problems of national interest.
