In a unanimous vote, members of the Harvard Law School (HLS) faculty have approved making their scholarly articles available on line free of charge.

HLS is the first law school to take this action, according to a news release announcing the vote. The Faculty of Arts and Sciences took similar action in February, voting that faculty members, unless they explicitly opt out, must deposit copies of the journal articles they publish in an on-line repository where computer users worldwide can read them.
