The great majority are the journals published at various American law schools. Although they are typically edited by students, many of them are the leading journals in American law, containing articles by professors, judges, practitioners, and other recognized authorities. Most of them deal with all areas of law, though some concentrate on particular subjects.
There are also journals published by professional bodies (e.g. the American Bar Association), by other specialized bodies (e.g. the Copyright Society of the U.S.A.), and by commercial publishers.
