Law Reviews- what do legal professionals really think of them?

Were you on Law Review or Law Journal? Have you ever published an article? A new article, reviewed here, recaps a recent survey of law professors, judges, attorneys, and student editors and their opinions toward law reviews.

From the article: "Generally, law professors were the most critical and student editors the least critical of law reviews. Respondents identified several problems with law reviews. They believed that law review articles are too long. The law professors were dissatisfied with the effects of law reviews on their careers. The law professors, attorneys, and judges in the survey believed that law reviews are not meeting the needs of attorneys and judges."

I served on law journal for two terms. My job consisted mostly of fact-checking on citations, so not very exciting.
