"Navigating the Law Review Article Selection Process"

Leah M. Christensen and Julie A. Oseid (both at the
University of St. Thomas School of Law) have written
a report describing their study on what factors student
editors consider most important when making law review
article selection decisions.

The report, available on SSRN, "examines how law review
editors at all levels of the law school 'tier' system weigh the
importance of author credentials, topic, format, and timing of
an article submission in making their selection decisions."
In addition to describing the survey results, the article
provides commentary from the student editors about their
selection process and provides suggestions for new law professors
planning to submit articles for publication.
