Law Review and Part-Timers
« on: April 18, 2006, 10:39:58 AM »
How often do part-time students participate on the law review?  Are P-Timers looked down on by those making selection?  Also, is it possible to get on law review not your second, but third year?

Not real likely, since most part timers work full time and won't have any extra time to put towards cite-checking... ::)

At most schools part-timers are eligible to be on law review. Membership requirements differ from one law review to the next. At mine, you have to be on it for two years (both   full and part-time). Thus, you would try out at the end of your second year and start in your third year.

I am an evening student at my school and also the Managing Editor of my Law Review. SO yes, it can be done. I graded-on after my first year and became Manag. Editor after my 2nd year.
