Moot Court vs. Journal?
« on: July 02, 2009, 07:52:04 AM »
I got offers from a few journals, and I also got into Moot Court. I am not sure which option to choose. Any suggestions?
Thanks.

Can't you do a journal and moot court?

Nope. It's either one or the other.

Main journal first.

Moot Court if you KNOW you want to do litigation.

Secondary journal if you don't care--it's probably less work than MC.

Your school won't let you do both?

If not then I co-sign to Bigbie.

Yep.  1) Law Review; 2) Moot court or secondary.
