This websitethe first devoted only to legal book reviewsresponds to the observed decline in law review publication of legal book reviews. This void was illustrated by Professor Sanford Levinson of the University of Texas School of Law in his essay, The Vanishing Book Review in Student-Edited Law Reviews and Potential Responses, 87 Texas L. Rev. 1205 (2009). While the top twenty law reviews devoted over 2,200 pages to book reviews in 19871988, they devoted less than half of this space to book reviews in 20072008.The new Dicta website is designed to alleviate this problem, allowing professors and practitioners to share their
thoughts and recommendations about legal books of interest through short reviews published online. Dicta is
currently accepting proposals for online book reviews to be edited and published online during the 20112012
school year. Proposals, including a short abstract and CV, may be submitted to Stephen Fraser at
dicta [at] texaslrev.com. More information about submissions is available at Dictas Guidelines page.
