The Yale Law Journal


“It is to the alumni of the future, not of the past that the Journal appeals most strongly . . . . [I]t is certain that we often appreciate too little and lose too quickly our connection and interests in these institutions of learning as we go out from them.”

—William P. Aiken, Chairman, 1 Yale L.J. 269 (1892)
