1) Would you like a forum to publish your long paper (or other extensive research projects) so that you can more easily put it on your resume, track downloads, etc.? We just started up an institutional repository, Mitchell Open Access, that could host student scholarship. (note that the repository won’t be launched for another couple of weeks, so at the moment it’s light on content.)
2) Did you know that you can submit essays for publication in law reviews, on the Library’s dime? We use a service called ExpressO, and our students have access (up to 50 electronic submissions… $100). Many law reviews allow student submissions….
