Law review: does it improve writing? Part 1
Excerpt from a student-written seminar paper:
Contrary to first-year law students' beliefs and student law-journal editors' contentions, student law journals, specifically those at the University of Texas School of Law, are not, in their present condition, effective tools for improving staff members' legal writing. Journal staff members confirm that membership, at best, provides ample opportunity to practice citation and pointed research. The legal writing of student law-journal editors has a greater chance of improvement, but even this is limited.
