Elon Law Review publishes two new editions

Volume 2, Issue 1 of the Elon Law Review explores "Emerging Frameworks for International Business Transactions." Issue 2 explores issues in contract interpretation, the foreign intelligence exception to the Fourth Amendment's warrant requirement, property rights, and judicial discretion in the application of domestic violence protective orders.

Details about both issues in Volume 2 are included below. All articles, notes and book reviews from these issues will be available for download through the Elon Law Review website in the coming weeks. Click here for information about subscriptions and back orders.

Editors of the Elon Law Review expect to publish Volume 3, Issue 1 in the coming weeks. It will be a symposium issue on “Engaged Learning in the Law.” Elon Law Professor and Director of the Center for Engaged Learning in the Law, Steve Friedland has been instrumental in the advance of this issue.

Volume 3, Issue 2, will be a symposium issue, following the Fall 2010 symposium, "Transparency, Secrecy, and the Internet: Striking a Balance Between the Ideals of Privacy and Accountability in the Digital Age.”
