Law student journal?
« on: May 17, 2009, 06:54:15 PM »
I've seen this mentioned a few times. What is it? Or rather, how is it different than a journal kept by anyone else?

It's not a diary.  Law journals and law reviews are academic publications.  You either grade on or have to compete in a writing competition to "make" journal or LR, and then you get the privilege of working your ass off 2L year writing your own academic paper while cite checking and editing the articles your journal or LR has chose to publish in the upcoming volumes.

Yes, I know that, thanks. I'm talking about something else, but I guess no one knows.

Quote from: Tim Mitchell
You could leave a cardboard cutout of Erik Estrada at the front counter and I guarantee you no one would ever know the difference.
Not so much because you resemble Erik Estrada, more so because you have the personality of cardboard.

Um...well, if you were really talking about something else, perhaps you could enlighten us as to what it was?  Because the only type of journal I've seen discussed on LSD is the law review type.

Is being an a-hole a prerequisite to being a law student? If so, I'm screwed.
