As the Cardozo Law Review’s online journal, de·novo publishes shorter works of legal scholarship written by legal scholars, professors, judges, and practitioners, including articles on timely legal issues, as well as responses to articles that appear in the print journal. In addition, de·novo publishes several student notes each year. De·novo hosts “online symposia” that feature pieces of legal scholarship centered around selected legal issues in order to foster a timely and topical debate.

Cardozo Law Review’s online companion journal, de·novo, is designed to promote discourse regarding current legal topics, as well as academic matters, through the publication of shorter (10-25 pages maximum) and more targeted pieces.
