UPDATE: Moving to front, since I stupidly neglected to open comments the first time!
A colleague at American University writes:
A committee I'm on at the American University Washington College of Law is preparing to examine the questions below, and I suggested that to elicit more information more efficiently we submit them to a blawg for general discussion.
Here are the questions
(1) Do law school faculties/administrations generally have oversight of the rules that their law reviews have concerning footnote to text ratios, template verification, and other formatting requirements?
(2) If so, have editors or authors argued that such oversight interferes with the quality of the published articles?
(3) Do law schools generally award credit to students for their work as law review editors?
As usual, non-anonymous comments strongly preferred; please post only once and be patient, as comments may take awhile to appear.
