Top Ten Spookiest Law Review Articles

Since 2008 we’ve periodically surveyed the law review literature for those ghoulish gems that put us in the Halloween spirit. Here are our picks for the past two years of the scariest law review articles, chosen by title alone.

Research tip: Find these and other chilling law review articles by using “title” section searching (also called segment searching) in the advanced search for Lexis Advance or Westlaw Edge and typing in the spooky word like “ghost” “witch” or “mummy” in the title field.
