MLR Online: De Novo and Experto Crede

De Novo


De Novo is the newest addition to the Minnesota Law Review family. The blog serves as a forum through which the staff, editors, and alumni of the Minnesota Law Review can contribute to legal thought and academic debate.


De Novo features posts in a variety of forms: essays, policy briefs, legal reporting, case comments, and more. The blog serves as a vehicle through which the Minnesota Law Review community can reflect on the current legal landscape and further the discussion.
