Undergrads at Harvard University are so eager for the law school experience that they’re starting their own law review. The Harvard Undergraduate Law Review has already put out its first issue. The editors hope to get submissions from professors as well as undergrads on a range of topics relevant to pre-law majors.
The important question is where the new journal fit into the extremely important hierarchy of law reviews. Best guess is that the "Harvard" in its name will cause it to be ranked for tenure and promotion purposes somewhere between the flagship law reviews of third-tier schools and the secondary reviews at second-tier school.
