Michael Cicchini's law review articles

In my efforts to advocate for legal reform I have also published extensively in law reviews. My law review articles have been cited in state and federal court decisions, annotated statutes, legal treatises, attorneys' motions and briefs, legal reform initiatives, books, newspaper articles, social science journal articles, and in other law review articles, notes, and comments.  (Law review articles are not legal advice. If you have a legal issue or legal question of any kind, immediately call a licensed attorney in your state.)
