If you're making a "lateral" transfer, they want to see that you did reasonably well at their peer school (not at the bottom at least). And you will want a really good LOR from one of your law school profs who can speak to your ability to function/excel in law school (I've been told by one Dean that this is nearly as important as the LS GPA, if it is a good one from a respected prof).
If you're wanting to transfer "up" then it is obviously more competitive. Not impossible. But it does get more competitive. Try to do the best you can finishing out this semester... and try your best to get an offer to join one of the journals. And again, get a good letter from a law prof.
Also, consider talking to some of the transfers at your school to see what they did. I always liked talking to 2L transfers about studying/etc. even as a 1L because whatever they did at their school obviously worked (even if it was a "lesser" school).
