The Editors in Chief of the Montana Law Review asked me to write a piece to kickoff the new MLR website. Specifically, I was asked to comment on one or both of the student notes referred to on the website: State v. Cooksey and Montana Cannabis Industry Association v. State of Montana. I agreed to do that. But there was more I wanted to say and the Editors very graciously gave me the liberty to write what I wanted. Law review pieces are typically compartmentalized, and I’ll endeavor to follow that format, although this is certainly not a scholarly article. In turn, I want to talk about the importance of the new website to the law review; the importance of new blood; the importance of student notes; and why the law review should be important to the courts.
