Importance of LR for T6 candidates

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Jun 13, 2011 3:13 am

So I recently missed a competition to write-on law review. Didn't want to do it, and then finally got into doing some of it, and then it was too late to do anything about it. :?

However, a LOT of people were telling me not to do it. I have a position on another journal and I'm told it basically only matters if you want to clerk. Which I definitely don't.

I'm told if you're at a T6 grades matter most, then work experience, then activities (of which LR is foremost, but not by much)

Opinions?

I write this because I was so sure I didn't want to do it, but now I'm like "WTF??? why not!??" That said, I will be happy to have that extra time to do stuff which truly interests me, whether legal or not.

Law review membership doesn’t appear to buy much during OCI. This result surprised me enough that I ran another halfdozen regressions (including regressions incorporating various interaction terms and proxies for firm selectivity/prestige), but I was unable to find a statistically significant effect in any regression.


Yeah...huh. Well, color me surprised? I guess.
