Yesterday, Prof. Orin Kerr (GWU Law) posted about the inevitability of Kindle editions of law reviews, following Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy’s Kindle offering. Prof. Orin Bainbridge’s (UCLA Law) rejoinder lists the many reasons that the Kindle platform is less than convenient (or even adequate) for law review articles, including Kindle's problem with footnotes.
Over the last few years, we’ve seen many posts about the adequacy of Kindles, iPads, as well as other e-readers and e-tablets, for lawyers, academics, and law students. Here are just a few:
- On the uses of Kindles for lawyers
- Prof. Kaimipono D. Wenger’s (TJSL) July 2009 review of the Kindle, including discussion about the Kindle’s handling of Endnotes
- Prof. Douglas A. Berman (OSU Law) on bringing iPads and Kindles to law school classrooms and several 2007 Law School Innovation posts here and here and here).
