The National Law Journal is pleased to announce the formation of a new editorial board to advise us on our coverage, give us feedback on news, analysis and opinion, and write occasional op-ed pieces for us on pressing issues in law and the legal profession. Nearly two dozen prominent judges�both current and former�as well as lawyers and academics from a variety of practice areas throughout the United States were chosen for this purpose, with the idea in mind to establish a stronger connection with a broad cross section of our readers. (See our new masthead.) Of course, this does not mean that our new board members will be allowed to “spin” a story that touches on their law firms or fields of expertise, for their role is merely advisory; reporters and editors will as always retain complete control over the content and tenor of a story. But we hope our new board will give us a more nuanced ear for the full chorus of voices in the legal community. The idea of an editorial board at the NLJ is not new, but the launching of its latest incarnation represents a renewed effort by the NLJ to fulfill its 25-year-old mission as the weekly newspaper for the legal profession. Another NLJ tradition that we would like to revive at this time is providing on a more regular basis editorials written by our own staff of editors. While our reporters and editors take very seriously our duty to report the news in a balanced and objective fashion, there will be times in this space where the editors will take up an opinionated pen and join the public debate on serious issues facing lawyers today. We hope that our editorials will serve to encourage the lively and thoughtful exchange of ideas among our readers at a time when mere name-calling too often masquerades as debate in the media and in society. As always, our readers are encouraged to contact us by e-mail with feedback in the form of news tips, letters to the editor or op-ed pieces, at [email protected].
