Yeah that's why I said being a "senior editor" probably wouldn't be worth it unless it's a small time commitment....the title doesn't carry enough weight to justify a large workload.  A titled board position is different.

Our board is divided similarly but the "executive" editors review the 2L work so I imagine the responsibilities of the ME fall more in line with what Alci described.  We publish 6 issues per year  (oh joy!  :( ).

Yeah that's how my journals worked.  And if you're going to publish six issues, being ME will likely be a huge time commitment.

Yeah 6 times is pretty aggressive. Good experience though I'm sure.

LOL  Oh you'll still deal with crazy fact patterns and a jazillion cases, it'll just be limited to about 2 days as opposed to 2 months.   :P

I remember my LRW appellate brief. We had to defend this company from employment discrimination at a place of business with a llama on the premises and blankets made out of hemp.  And the former employee was a reformed pot head.  Wild wild stuff I'm tellin you.
