The Ohio State Journal of Criminal Law
is very pleased to introduce OSJCL Amici: Views from the Field
, a first-of-its-kind, online resource for timely and critical commentaries on the cutting edge of criminal law. Our hope in creating this resource is to help bridge the divide between the academy and the practicing community by creating a venue for leading practitioners to engage with academics, students, the public, and others in the criminal law field.We expect that future on-line commentaries will come from practicing lawyers as well as judges, and we expect to cover a diverse range of topics so that OSJCL Amici can serve as a forum for a broad array
of interested authors and readers. We hope that you enjoy our first offering of essays, and that you will share your feedback on both the substance and style of this new endeavor.
