Law Review or IP-specific Journal?

Postby Patent2014 » Sun Mar 08, 2015 11:16 am

Clearly LR is the "best choice"/most prestigious/etc., but assuming you don't need LR to get your ideal firm, would the benefit of working on an IP-specific journal on topics related to your future career outweigh the prestige of being on LR? I really like my law school's IP journal and I think it would be a lot more enjoyable, and career-relevant, to work on it instead of LR. Thoughts?

If you don't need to be on a journal then I wouldn't do either

Both are pretty useless in terms of practical help for your career. LR, however, is a badge you can (and should) put on your resume, bio, etc. for your entire career.
