National Jurist
« on: March 28, 2009, 12:41:39 PM »
What does everyone think about "The National Jurist"? We have them laying around the law school for the taking, and I usually grab one to skim. I've noticed that the entire magazine seems to be for pushing either bad LLMs from bad schools or the bad schools themselves.

The last issue, about most diverse faculty, cited Cooley's rankings and talks up the 3 highly diverse law schools in PR, while contrasting them to UC Davis in a way that seems intended to make Davis look bad.

It also brought up Thomas Jefferson School of Law several times, highlighted some guy that goes to Mississippi College, another that graduated from NYLS, and pushed for more required legal writing (yeah, great, let's just require legal writting for the whole 3 years so everyone always wants to kill themselves all the time...).

Yea I've read it a few times, it seems like its main purpse is to sell adds and include a few caned artciles, I think its geared more for UG types. Student Lawyer, American lawyer (outraguoisly expensinve though) and the ABA mag are all better for giving you an indea of what the legal realities are out there in the real world.
