The March number of the Harvard Law Review, which has just been issued, completes the first volume of that magazine. The year has been very successful, both in the great interest which has been awakened in the Review and in the high standard of the articles which have been contributed. The leading article of the present number is the third part of the "Brief Survey of Equity Jurisdiction," by Prof. C. C. Langdell, of the Law School. Prof. Langdell is regarded as one of the leading authorities in the country on this subject, and he has gathered into the pages printed in the Review, some of the results of years of study. The work, as far as published, has been received with a great deal of attention. It is characterized by solid learning and by careful criticism. The fourth and last part of the work will be published next October.
Mr. C. T. Parker, of the Law School, contributes to this number a paper on the "Nature of a Policy of Insurance with regard to its assignment." It is a clear and careful study of the subject. The usual editorials, notes, and summaries of recent cases complete the number. It is announced that the coming volume will contain papers on the history and development of "Assumpsit," by Professor Ames, and an article by Professor Keener on "Mistakes of Law." A number of well known legal authorities, outside of the Law School, have also promised to contribute. The success of the coming volume seems already assured, if an opinion may be formed from the success of the past year and from the excellence of the matter promised by the board of editors.
