Mississippi Law Journal

Articles published in scholarly journals, such as law journals or law reviews, tend to be longer and more theoretical. They are typically heavily footnoted. Articles in practice oriented publications, such as bar journals or legal newspapers, tend to be shorter and more practical. They are typically lightly footnoted.
