Notable new journal with some innovative weekend reading

I just got an e-mail announcing an interesting new journal than would-be criminal justice reformers will want to be sure to check out.  Here is the text of the e-mail with links:

I'm writing to announce the publication of the first issue of the Journal of Court Innovation, a new journal that we have created in collaboration with Pace Law School and the New York State Judicial Institute.

The goal of the Journal is simple: to spark new thinking about how courts work and the role they play in our society. Along the way, we hope to bridge the worlds of theory and practice.  Like most scholarly journals, the Journal of Court Innovation will include in-depth examinations of complicated subjects. But it will also contain shorter pieces describing provocative experiments, interviews with leading thinkers and practitioners, and book reviews that highlight cutting-edge scholarship.

I think our first issue gives you a sense of the rich diversity of content that you can expect from the Journal going forward.  The first issue includes articles about using the Internet to impanel jurors, how to smooth the transition of parolees from prison to the community, and the lessons that can be learned from failed criminal justice reforms.  To subscribe to the Journal or to access articles from the first issue, visit http://www.courtinnovation.org/journal.html
