I've heard this said before, i.e., that law review is just a "check and a pull" for "12 hours a semester." To the best of my knowledge, this is not even remotely true at flagship law reviews that publish eight issues a year. At Michigan, law review involves one cite checking, source gathering, or incorping assignment per week
for three semesters (both 2L and first 3L). One such assignment takes four to twelve hours. There's also a one week orientation right after OCI and grading responsibilities over 2L summer.
