Welcome to the Year in Review Online. As many of you already know, our popular Year in Review feature is now exclusively online. This major change is a condition of our renegotiated contract with the Alaska Bar Association. The move reflects a mutual agreement between the bar association and Duke University School of Law that the Alaska Law Review can operate most cost-effectively by transitioning the Year in Review online.

We began providing the Year in Review in 1989 as a service to our readers. Over the years, it has remained one of our most popular features. We believe the online version will provide versatile reading options for those interested in reviewing judicial decisions of the past year. They are easy to access on this website and are searchable by case name and area of law. Additionally, we have provided a printer-friendly electronic version for those who prefer to have the entire copy of the Year in Review in paper format.

The Year in Review is a collection of brief summaries of selected state and federal appellate cases concerning Alaska law. They are not an authoritative guide and are only intended to alert the Alaska legal community about judicial decisions from the previous year. Therefore, it is our hope that the searchable nature of the online format will better serve those informative goals. Due to the popularity of the Year in Review, we anticipate that many of you will have opinions about the format. Our primary goal is to satisfy our readership to the best of our abilities; to that end, we welcome and encourage feedback. If you would like to respond to our format, or would like to see theYear in Review returned to print format, please address your concerns to the Editor-in-Chief at alr@law.duke.edu.
