Editor’s Foreword: Singularly First Person

By Benjamin G. Shatz, Editor-in-Chief

Benjamin G. Shatz

Judge Curtis Karnow of the San Francisco Superior Court did us all a remarkable service by publishing a duo of articles in February titled Dissolving Legal Barriers (Daily Journal, Feb. 20-21, 2019). He points out that lawyers, judges (trial and appellate), law professors, and law students, are all striving for the same goal—doing justice—yet only have sporadic contact and are not learning from each other. His points are valid and serious.

One of Judge Karnow’s proposed solutions is that there be a law journal that connects lawyers, judges, professors, and scholars, and that contains articles that are actually useful to the practice of law. We at California Litigation believe that this journal comes close to connecting these constituencies and has always endeavored to contain articles of practical use to the bench and bar.
