Has anyone heard of a 2L Law Review EIC?

At my law school our new Editor-in-Chief is technically a 2L. Has anyone ever heard of this happening before?

On my journal, the new leadership positions assume responsibility at the start of 2L spring semester.

no respectable law review has 1L members at all, much less 2L EICs in the fall semester

Either
1. this isn't a law review (it's a shitty secondary journal)
2. this is a TTTT law review
3. this is some journal where all it publishes is student work

none of the above are ideal

While I can see how you might jump to this conclusion. It is a TT School and the Journal is ranked fairly well in its specialty. However, from your comment it seems this type of thing doesn't happen very often...

So it's *not* the law review and he was right...

Technically possible for a pseudo-2L (third year student in 4-year dual degree)
