Ahh, law review. What is there to say about our dear friend law review. There is such a love hate relationship with becoming a member of your school’s law review. But you wouldn’t know it unless you were in the trenches. So how can you know if it’s right for you, before you are even chosen?
First things first, depending on your law school there are multiple ways to become a member of law review. Some schools allot a specific number of slots to the top percent of students. The remaining slots are allotted based on a student’s Write On Submission. Well what in the world? A write on submission is a try-out so that the law review board can see what your academic writing skills are. But don’t get too overwhelmed, you are given some parameters so you won’t have to go write a dissertation on the Proximate Cause Debate – we all know Justice Andrews was wrong.
