Welcome Alumni! The Cornell Law Review has recently started an Alumni Relations program with the purpose of informing Law Review alumni all over the country of all the new and exciting developments on the Cornell Law Review. We do this by sending out a bi-monthly newsletter, called the “Cornell Law [P]review,” containing a summary of the most recent articles the Law Review has published, as well as a profile of a successful Law Review alum. We also use the newsletter as a way to communicate with alumni about any big changes to Law Review, and to inform alumni about any public events the Law Review is hosting (such as our upcoming symposium in New York City). If you haven’t already, we encourage you to sign up and give us your email address so you can start receiving an electronic copy of the “Cornell Law [P]review.” Together, we look forward to building a strong network of Law Review alumni that spans throughout the entire country, and soon throughout the world.

The Court’s actual holding in Knox was not the most portentous [...]
