What are law students doing in their own scholarship?

For the answer to that question, take a look at Taking Note of Notes: Student Legal Scholarship in Theory and Practice, by Andrew Yaphe at Standford Law School.  

As he puts it, his article "does two things, neither of which appears to have been attempted by anyone hitherto. First, it offers an extensive critique of the leading guidebooks for aspiring student authors (e.g. Eugene Volokh’s Academic Legal Writing), which are taken to task for their narrow conceptions of student scholarship. Second, it provides an empirical analysis of recent student notes, enabling the reader to get an overview of the forms that student scholarship has actually taken over the past few years."
