benefit of doing more than one secondary journal?

Postby mn40 » Sun Mar 18, 2018 2:05 pm

I'm a 1L currently on a secondary journal. I'd be interested in pursuing D. Ct. clerkships or a SSC clerkship. Assuming that I don't make law review, would there any marginal benefit at all to doing an additional secondary journal? (I'd have to join the second one as a 2L)

Thanks

No, very doubtful. Stick with your current journal and try to get published.

No. You tick the box by doing a journal; doing more than one isn't going to add anything.

Zero benefit to doing multiple secondary journals. Questionable benefit to doing one secondary journal if you don't make law review and your doing the journal for the sake of clerking. In all reality either a judge will be set on law review or can get over you not having that on the resume. Very few OSCAR posts suggest that a secondary journal is worth anything. Your time is probably better spent studying and writing an article for publication than bothering with even one secondary journal.
