Even law reviews are taking a hit in this economy. Law.com reports on the findings of a George Mason Law professor, who found that paid circulation of law reviews has declined over the past 30 years--but especially lately.
Some of the most striking findings?
The reported paid circulation for the Harvard Law Review, Davies found, was 8,760 in 1979 but a mere 2,029 in 2009 -- a decline of nearly 77%. Paid circulation for The Yale Law Journal dropped by more than 57% -- from 4,051 in 1980 to 1,725 in 2009.
Still, you as a law student should be interested in learning more about serving on Law Review!
