Career Advice

One of the better articles I've seen on law school teaching comes from Professor Wendel at Cornell. The approach taken in the article is to present that this is a very difficult field to enter, but with a certain lighthearted tone so that those of us without Ivy League degrees don't go away crying.

Not that long ago, in attempting to burnish my resume, I was shopping around a scholarly article I'd written. The tepid reception I received from law reviews is somewhat explained by the article. The clueless reception from the one journal in my academic field that I tried isn't, but maybe they were just dazzled by my use of footnotes.
