Law and Literature, published triennially and edited by the faculty of the Cardozo School of Law of Yeshiva University and a board of international scholars, is one of only two journals in the country entirely focused on the interdisciplinary movement known as Law and Literature. The movement, which explores law-related literature and the literary value of legal documents, provides a unique perspective on how law and literature are mutually enlightening. Issues in private law and public law, restrictions on creative expression, gender and racial bias, hermeneutics (interpretative methodologies), and legal themes in works of literature are among the journal's regular topics.
Law and Literature was previously published as Cardozo Studies in Law and Literature by the Cardozo School of Law from 1989-2001. Beginning in 2002, the journal appears as Law and Literature and is published by University of California Press.
The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue
available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal.
Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a
publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current
issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year
moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.
Terms Related to the Moving Wall
Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive.
Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title.
