Every fall many law students become embroiled in two distinct, yet remarkably similar, markets: the law clerk market and the law review article market. While there has been considerable ink spilled about each market separately, there has never been a discussion of the similarities of the two and the lessons to be learned by the comparison. This short essay begins to fill this much needed gap in the legal literature.
