About En Banc
Welcome to Vanderbilt Law Review’s Online Companion!
Vanderbilt Law Review En Banc is an online forum designed to advance scholarly discussion. En Banc offers professors, practitioners, students, and others an opportunity to respond to articles printed in the Vanderbilt Law Review. En Banc permits extended discussion of our articles in a way that maintains academic integrity and provides authors with a quicker approach to publication.
When reexamining a case “en banc” an appellate court operates at its highest level, with all judges present and participating “on the bench.” We chose the name “En Banc” to capture this spirit of focused review and provide a forum for further dialogue where all can be present and participate.
En Banc publishes responses as PDF files on the Vanderbilt Law Review website. The responses will be published on a rolling basis through the academic year. Responses should be less than 3,000 words and lightly footnoted. En Banc also considers comments, essays, and book reviews. All pieces will be edited by the Vanderbilt Law Review staff. En Banc welcomes all responses that meaningfully contribute to scholarly discussion.
