Open Access at Harvard Law School

Inside Higher Ed (the single best source of US Higher Education News in my opinion) has just published the following:

The law faculty at Harvard University on Wednesday announced plans to create an open access repository of all work that the professors publish. Faculty members will also be able to publish the works on their own Web sites and disseminate the works broadly for purposes other than profit. The law school’s move follows a similar policy adopted in February by the arts and sciences faculty at Harvard.

For those thinking about applying for Master of Law programs, this will be a great additional resource to access when preparing your academic goals. For those applying to Harvard's LL.M. program (see here for my analysis of the application for Fall 2009 admission), soon you will be able to easily access faculty research to help you determine who you might want to reference when answering the following application essay question:
"Academic interests: Please describe the areas of your academic interest, including a list of three to five courses in which you are most interested. If you are interested in pursuing the concentration in international finance, tax, human rights, or corporate law and governance, or in the six-credit LL.M. Thesis option, please so indicate. (Note: Please limit your response to no more than 200 words.)"

For those applying to University of Chicago and other Law schools you can get access to faculty research by visiting http://www.ssrn.com/. For more LL.M. links, see my LL.M. Resources list on left column of my blog.
