Alaska Doesn’t Have a Law School

But John Havelock thinks it should:

For a generation, Alaska has been the only state that does not maintain at least one law school. Considering the force of Alaska’s identity as an exceptional, independent state with a unique economy and social structure, this is strange.

But Alaska does have a law review.  Why is it at Duke?

The Alaska Bar Association recognizes a need for a scholarly publication devoted specifically to issues affecting Alaska. Alaska does not, however, have a state law school so the Alaska Bar selected Duke University School of Law to publish the Alaska Law Review.

So I imagine that if Alaska gets its own law school, the Alaska Law Review will be relocated.
