Do you know why a number of reviews are switching? Is it possible that they prefer the higher price as a way of reducing the number of submissions. In theory, this higher cost might make law profs and little more restrained with respect to mass mailings. I actually do not think so but otherwise I do not understand the change.

That's one possible explanation. I agree that it is unlikely to work. Scholastica claims to have a better back-end of the system, so this might be a plus for the law reviews.

I worry more about "resume bias" at the expedited review end: perhaps if the journal knows that a low-end journal accepted an article, they are less likely to pay attention to the expedited review request or to say yes to the article.
