One of the big accomplishments in law school is being appointed to the school's law review. This is a good thing, but when you're not exactly a strong student, there is no chance to be selected. Sometimes, you school has other law journals you can work on, but that's no guarantee either. But when there's a startup law journal, especially one that holds your interest, you're golden.
Our school is starting a Sino-Americal Legal Education Review this year, and while we won't be writing any notes, it is a great opportunity to get some extra work done for your resume. I'm excited to be a part of this journal; even if I don't get to write on it, as the material is rather interesting to me.
