Harvard Faculty Launch New Peer-Edited Journal

The Journal of Legal Analysis it will be called; the Harvard announcement is here.  Given the editorial board, it seems vaguely like the Journal of Legal Studies, but the latter is so well-established it's hard to see why authors would prefer the former to the latter.  And in an era when faculty edit Legal Theory, Law & Philosophy, Journal of Empirical Legal Studies, Journal of Law & Economics, American Journal of Legal History, and so on, it's hard to know what niche this will fill.  Perhaps the idea is to get faculty to take the piece that might have gone to the Harvard Law Review and give it, instead, to the Journal of Legal Analysis.  I certainly hope it succeeds.
