Law student journal?

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.

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.
