If one is offered a place on a school's secondary law journal, is it worth the time and effort investment to accept? Does it make any real difference to an employer? I know Law Review is the golden apple, but alas it's not in my cards, and I'm not sure if another journal would be a worthwhile time investment.Thanks
I'd probably suggest to only do the secondary journal if I was actually interested in the subject. Journals are a pretty huge time suck and the minimal resume boost you get from it probably isn't worth it for that reason alone.
If it the choice was to either work part time at a law firm or join secondary journal in a subject you're not interested in, the firm work would probably be the better.Law Review isn't the only thing out there that can enhance the resume.
