Abstract:     
It is common practice, as it has been for decades, for legal scholars to submit draft papers to many law journals simultaneously. They then tell more prestigious journals of publishing offers they have received from less prestigious journals, in an effort to maximize the prestige of the journal in which the piece finally appears. They do so to benefit their personal careers, overlooking that, along the way, they have systematically redistributed labor away from student editors at less prestigious journals, and toward student editors at more prestigious journals. They — we — are wrong to do it and should stop.
