Once again, I am digging up the age-old question of whether you should consider law review membership. There is no hiding the fact that law review is an enormous time and energy commitment. But I gained so much. both personally and professionally, from being a law review editor-in-chief, so I am going to emphasize the benefits of membership in the hopes that you’ll be able to weigh the benefits and burdens. All in all, you’ll have to make the best decision for you.
