The Harvard Law Review is a student-run organization whose primary purpose is to publish a journal of legal scholarship. The Review comes out monthly from November through June and has roughly 2,500 pages per volume. The organization is formally independent of the Harvard Law School. Student editors make all editorial and organizational decisions and, together with a professional business staff of three, carry out day-to-day operations.
For this specific project, like other projects, we did not actually design this website but worked with the Harvard Law Review team in a Website Management role. How it works is simple; we are the vendor who works on upgrading and updating the current Harvard Law Review website. To get started on this engagement, there were a few key problem areas and pain points on the current website that were identified by HLR as the initial set of items that needed to be worked on, corrected and or upgraded. Once those items were completed, we then became an on-demand vendor for any issues, upgrades, updates, web strategy advice and more.
