Law Review Letter of Recommendation Help
« on: September 18, 2008, 03:42:24 PM »
I'm not too sure if this would be too specific of a question to ask, but hypothetically speaking: If someone were unable to get an "Academic" LOR from one of their undergraduate professors; however, they were able to get a LOR from a professor from a Tier 4 school (Cal Western) in which Legal Research was performed and a significant amount of time was spent weekly towards the publication of an article for Law Review, would this fall under "Academic" or would the admissions officer not consider too highly of this?
Thanks in advance to anyone willing to help me!

i would find an undergraduate professor (most will write one even if they don't know your work extremely well). if the law professor can write a glowing rec, i would include that as an additional letter. that being said, i don't think it will hurt your application much either way.
