Open Access Week

Author: 

October 22-28 is Open Access Week. The open access movement aims to make scholarly work free and immediately available online to all. UConn Law promotes access to legal scholarship in part through its digital repository, OpenCommons@UConn, which makes our faculty’s scholarship available freely online.

Since the repository was launched in 2016, our faculty’s work has been downloaded over 80,000 times. Downloads come from all over the world.

Top 5 Downloads (Current Faculty):

1. Mark Janis, The New Oppenheim and its Theory of International Law

2. Michael Fischl, The Question that Killed Critical Legal Studies

3. Richard Kay, Retroactivity and Prospectivity of Judgments in American Law

4. Stephen Utz, Maine's Ancient Law and Legal Theory
