If you had to pick one, LR will serve you best in job prospects/judicial clerkship opportunities. Moot court is much more practical if you want to be a litigator. However, several of the research, analytical, writing, Bluebooking, and editing skills that you learn as a member of law review are also useful for moot court. Most of your moot court experience will involve researching an issue and writing a brief. Of course, you will eventually prepare to argue your brief, but for many competitions the brief is worth at least half of your score.
Allegedly LR affords you some leeway when it comes grades.. i.e. professors are secretly inclined to bump you up a bit. BTW, you go to UNC?
Or Both...That is the question.I graded on to law review, but was invited to participate in moot court today. I would love to do both, but am concerned that the time commitment would be too much. Are there any students on here who have done both, or attempted to do both who can give me some feedback as to how it worked for them.Or, anyone have any input as to which activity is better for a resume.Thanks.
