Beginning in Vol. 54, the Akron Law Review will override Bluebook Rule 15.1(b) ("et al.") and instead adopt the "Fair Citation Rule". On the first occasion a source is cited, all authors will be listed.
Our reason for doing so is to give credit to all authors of a work, rather than only the lead author. The traditional et al. rule disproportionately affects authors in underrepresented groups by omitting names.
This is a tiny adjustment on our part to equitably credit all authors. Thank you @HoffProf for bringing this issue to our attention.
For reference, here is @ColumLRev 's departure from 15.1(b)
