thanks! At least the rain is keeping me from being distracted by the beautiful weather we have been having lately.

Maybe you all aren't thinking about this yet but...is there a strategy for ranking journals when you have to submit your choices for which ones you would like to be on? 

Up here they rank the journals for us. If we get on law review that's it, the other two journals have to fight (to the death) over the rest.

The problem with beautiful weather in Ithaca is that it comes with swamp-air. ::yuck::

I'd love to join this LGBT club.  It's the Legos, Gobots, Barbies, and other Toys group, right?  I'll show up with an armful of toys.

For us, we don't have to rank the main journal first.  I was wondering if there would be some reason to *not* put it first

I don't think so, unless there is some particular reason you really want to be a specific secondary journal. We don't have to rank the flagship first here either.

random story- I met a lawyer from one of the bigger firms here at a party last night, and he said he gets a $5,000 referral fee if he refers a person who gets hired at the firm.  Do all big firms have this??

Every place I've worked for has some kind of program like that, but I didn't expect big firms to for some reason. Is it for laterals only or does it include 1st years?
