A scholarly article written for a law review by a tenured professor at an elite law school carries a price tag of about $100,000, once the cost of salary, grants and research assistants is factored in, estimates Hofstra University law professor Richard Neumann. This number is too high, given that many of these articles are never cited after they are published, Neumann argues. "At least a third of these things have no value. Who is paying for that? Students who will graduate with six figures of debt," he says.
