Lucy McGough (LSU), James Bowers (LSU), and Richard Wise (UND - Psychology) are trying to assess the current system of student-run law reviews:
For the last several decades, there has been much controversy and discussion about how well the current system of student run law reviews and journals meet the needs of legal scholars, the legal profession, and its student members and how they can be improved. Despite the significance of this controversy, no one has determined the legal community's opinions about them.
The purpose of the present survey is to assess: (1) What law professors, attorneys, judges, and law review editors think about the current system of student run law reviews and journals; (2) Whether reforms are needed; and (3) If reforms are needed, what they should be.
We are asking for your help with this important survey because the success of any survey depends in large part on the number of people who complete the survey. The present survey is completely anonymous and confidential and only takes about 15-20 minutes to complete. The results of the survey will be reported in a law review article. A link for the survey is enclosed below:
Thank you very much for considering our request.
